Empire got itself a bad name during the past century, but recently more and more voices are making themselves heard in the international debate. Looking at empire and world order from both historical and present perspectives gives rise to many questions.

The texts stem from the Engelsberg Seminar, arranged by Axel and Margaret Ax:son Johnson Foundation.
