Barak Mendelsohn argues an important aspect in responding to this sort of probability and profitable the struggle opposed to terror within the twenty-first century is the hegemon—a robust kingdom that takes the lead and generates cooperation between states to struggle jihad.
While so much analyses of hegemony have desirous about energy, Mendelsohn firmly grounds the phenomenon in an internet of shared norms and ideas that either let and constrain the hegemon’s freedom of motion. He examines how the presence of a hegemonic kingdom impacts foreign cooperation, defense, and foreign relations—revealing, for instance, why the U.S. has came upon better cooperation for the battle in Afghanistan than for the struggle in Iraq. Tracing and explaining the various degrees of cooperation that exist for suppressing terrorism financing, for combating non-state actors from acquiring guns of mass destruction, and for supplying army help to U.S. hegemony, Combating Jihadism presents a nuanced knowing of the interplay among norms and power.

S. hegemony. It includes a range of simultaneous activities including active international cooperation, coordination between states, and each state’s independent efforts to realize its duties to the international society. While some states—usually the hegemon and the secondary powers—carry a larger share of the burden, the vigorous contribution of most members is also required. Collective response does not imply complete and unwavering cooperation or, clearly, the full suspension of conflict among members of the society.
61 These duties include the provision of an overarching conception of ordered international politics,62 the promotion of goals shared by all states, a commitment to the good of the society, and the exhibition of some self-restraint and respect for the concerns and interests of the other members. As long as the hegemon realizes its commitment to the collective, its position will be deemed legitimate. 63 The legitimacy of the hegemon’s position translates to influence over other states. This influence goes beyond merely shaping states’ behavior, to affecting the way in which they perceive their interests.
In the current system, the state is the main political unit in world politics; to reject it, or the principle of state sovereignty, is to reject the society. Similarly, a rejection of the principle of sovereign equality qualifies as a rejection of the Westphalian order. The role of international law in identifying the normative principles of the international society, stating the basic rules of coexistence between the system’s units and bringing about compliance to the principles of the society of states, means that an attack on the legitimacy of the institution of international law (as opposed to rejection of its content or the way it is being applied) is also an attack on the international society.
