The study has tried to maintain a focus on the interaction between revolutionary states and the sovereignty‐based notion of international society that has been termed here ‘the Westphalian conception of international society’. International order is a fundamental principle of international society and also one that has been frequently challenged by revolutionary states. It is possible to discern elements of a pattern in the interaction between international society and revolutionary states. There is always a close relationship between the domestic and foreign policies of revolutionary states. Revolutionary states encounter strong pressures to become socialized into the international society of which they find themselves part, but they have also over time influenced processes of change within international society.
