Butler, Fiona. (1993) The Relevance of Civilian Power? In: UNSPECIFIED, Washington, DC. (Unpublished)
[From the Introduction]. As a 'label' civilian power (CP) in relation to academic discourse on the EC enjoyed a reasonable status during the 1970s. Developed within the burgeoning debate over the crumbling of post-1945 US economic leadership, rising and complex interdepencence characterised by the presence of different forms of 'power' exerted by a variety of 'actors', and the onset of detent within Europe, CP was a reference point for distinct interpretations of change, and the use of power, within the international system. Whilst academic debate over the utility of CP was not wholly confined to the interpretations of Francois Duchene and Hedley Bull, the work of these writers set the terms of the debate.
