increasingly hierarchical and gendered instrument of Soviet foreign policy. Nonetheless, communism’s ambition was to make socialism coterminous with humankind - in contrast to nationalist aspirations of coexistence with other nations. 2 Communists necessarily proclaimed internationalism, but first and foremost they had to come to terms with the societies in which they lived and worked.

-determination had hardened enough, the political environment was ripe for decolonization and large-scale small state creation. This highly accommodating environment remains in place today, and as a result new small states emerged during the post-Cold War and post-9/11 periods. 140 Small states in world politics Systems of collective security in twentieth-century world politics: from Wilsonianism to a “New World Order”2 and beyond Wilsonian Internationalism and the interwar years, 1919–39 As the First World War raged on, the US president Woodrow Wilson readied himself to

Ashley Lavelle

chapter 3 The First World War: a defeat borne of nationalist bloodshed The outbreak of hostilities in August 1914 was a calamitous defeat not just for humanity at large, but also for revolutionary socialism and internationalism. An undeniably imperialist war, the conflict was one in which ‘millions of people laid down their lives to wrest a few yards of land from the enemy’ (Deutscher, 1954: 212). Rosa Luxemburg recoiled in disgust at this exhibition of capitalist barbarism: ‘Shamed, dishonoured, wading in blood and dripping with filth … an orgy of anarchy … so
