Description

The world system is changing fast - the end of the Cold War, shifts in the balance of power among the powerful, the knock-on effects of the Gulf War. To understand this new world, new ways of thinking are needed. Here, writers from several countries, including Fred Halliday and Susan George, map out some of those issues and consider how to approach them. Their research illuminates pressing problems such as environmental degradation, economic marginalization of the Third World, the political and economic evolution of the Soviet Union and Eastern Europe and the threat of a new militarism in the West. They focus on the problems and on the pathways to solutions.show more
