What does "influentian quarters" mean? When I read an article about politics I came across the following expression: "The reason has less to do with the confusions of the post-Cold War world or the classic canons of just-war thinking than with the intellectual deterioration of that theory itself in influential quarters" I can clearly understand most of the sentence, but the last expression is a struggle to my comprehension. Could you please help? Thanks!
