Description

Third World underdevelopment, the declining influence of the superpowers, the economic strength of Japan and Western Europe, and global economic and ecological interdependence have transformed the world political agenda. This book provides tools for understanding the threats and the opportunities posed by this transformation. Addressing four interrelated global problems - underdevelopment, human right violations, the arms race and environmental destruction - it offers a planetary perspective on how world politics are being reshaped. The book utilizes a global-humanist framework of values and ideas for analyzing world political economy. It presents twelve country studies that illustrate global issues and it concludes with a redefinition of international security and specific ways that it might achieve.
