Example text

The civilizing mission of culture 27 IR before the First World War The main problem with studying people, and especially people on an international scale, is one of how to account for the vast array of differences between them. For early IR scholars, these differences were contained by the concept of civilization. What it meant to be civilized had become increasingly based in race theory in the latter part of the nineteenth century; and the formal study of ‘race relations’ was the inevitable outcome of this form of the civilization concept.

Whether it was polite for one to spit under the table rather than over or on it became a matter of great importance and one in which the concept of polite behaviour is central (Elias 1939/1978:153–60). Politeness is a constructed activity and people needed to know how to behave politely in public, so much so that, as Elias indicates, books of instructions flourished during this period. Manners and etiquette (increasingly elaborate rituals of behaviour) exert control over individuals and the self, and they call for individual and collective restraint in the presence of persons more eminent than oneself.

37 Angell argued that ‘warlike nations would not The civilizing mission of culture 33 inherit the earth;’ they may conquer territory but they would not reap the benefits that civilization has constructed because there was greater international interconnectedness than in the past. 38 It was cooperation not competition that provided the basis of civilization in the twentieth century. 39 The need to understand and further civilization was at the heart of many intellectual problems, but since the dominant ‘paradigm’ was biologically determinist, this makes the early IR critics’ work all the more important.
