Norman Angell’s paintings represents the 1st try and advance a entire 'new liberal' method of the matter of worldwide governance, whereas David Mitrany’s exploration of the issues of overseas existence led him to use the left-liberal proposal of practical govt to international governance. either writers tested the level to which early 20th century liberal writers on foreign affairs had replied the critics of past 19th century liberal internationalists. The penultimate bankruptcy argues that the realist-idealist 'Great Debate' by no means occurred, and that liberal students similar to Angell and Mitrany were unfairly brushed aside as 'idealists.' the ultimate bankruptcy evaluates the writings of Angell and Mitrany and claims that the works of either authors may be criticised for theoretical weaknesses universal to the liberal paradigm.
