Among the significant consequences of the Cold War's end have been the rise of nations and the challenges that these nations pose for global order and international law. Taking a unique approach to explore this phenomenon, Beck and Ambrosio consider three principal themes: the emergence of nations, the international legal challenges that such nations pose, and international legal efforts to accommodate nations within the global state system.
