The aim of this thesis is to critically analyse US military intervention through an exploration of the justifications for and practice of intervention by the US. It does this by analysing two cases prior to, and two cases post, September 11, 2001 (9/11) in order to shed light on continuity or change in the justifications for, and practice of, military intervention across 9/11. This analysis is located within an English School (ES) frame of reference, through which it will evaluate the solidarist and pluralist contentions regarding the nature of international society and its relationship to international system and world society. It will consider the utilisation of norms in the justificatory discourses for intervention and the positioning of legitimacy built on these norms.
