About the Authors
  • In this volume distinguished scholars from different social science disciplines assess the emerging international order. The volume's three sections examine theories and strategies of order; the prospects of the major likely contenders for world leadership (the United States, Russia, China, the European Union, Japan and India); and the challenges to world order, including globalization, nationalism, ethnic and religious conflict, environmental degradation, and the spread of weapons of mass destruction. This book thus offers a comprehensive account of the prospects for a peaceful and just international order in the next century.

    • Comprehensive study of international order, covering theory, strategy, the major powers, and the key challenges
    • Interdisciplinary, including IR scholars, sociologists, and area studies specialists, with star contributors from a number of countries
    • Real prospects for classroom use, for upper-level undergraduates upwards
