The Anarchical Society: A Study of Order in World Politics is a 1977 book by Hedley Bull and a founding text of the so-called English School of international relations theory. The title refers to the assumption of anarchy in the international system (posited primarily by realists) and argues for the existence of an international society.

The book also outlines Bull's theory of new medievalism.
