Is an imperial world order an attainable and/or desirable goal?
The question here is whether there has ever been an imperial world order in the sense of a single, global imperial order. Even at the height of its power, the British Empire covered only around 25 percent of the world’s land surface and population. From a historical point of view, there is a certain question mark over the very notion of an imperial world order.
