Quasi anarchy One of the fundamental differences between the international system and domestic political systems is the absence of a recognized central governing authority in the international system. This often is referred to as the anarchic view of international relations.

The basics of this theory go back to the British economist John Hobson and his 1902 book Imperialism.
