David W. Kennedy, Sovereignty: Responding to Anghie and Aravamudan, 41 Tex. Int'l L.J. 465 (2006)(Symposium, Representing Culture: Translating Human Rights).

Abstract: The article discusses the parallelism and contrasting thoughts of two papers written by Srinivas Aravamudan and Antony Anghie about sovereignty in its contextual relation to politics. The authors define sovereignty as something that which take governance and where the power to decide resides, suggesting further that these are the particular form that which politics take. They both advance the idea that these form changes owing to a particular moment and dependent on the needs of the time.
