Abstract:

In 1910 Norman Angell published his Great Illusion. Today the book is dimply recalled and its message often misconstrued. The book claimed that modern states had entered a new historical era: an era of interdependence. It argued that if war broke out among interdependent states, there could be no winner; ruin would be brought upon all. The book concluded with a warning to the statesmen of the industrial powers: If they did not change their old Realist ways of thinking about international politics, they would pull the world down into a disasterous war. "The Great Illusion" is an important book - for its prophetic warning, for its criticism of Realism and for its application of the new term of interdepedence. This paper will argue, that to appreciate this book, and other of Angell's many books, it is important to recognize its authors' teenage experiences as homesteader and cowboy in America's Wild West.
