The end of the Cold War between the United States and the former Soviet Union reassured people around the world who had lived in fear of a nuclear confrontation between the superpowers. Yet the early euphoria over "peace dividends" and a "new world order" was premature. Conflicts within and between nation-states are springing up around the globe, challenging world leaders and ordinary citizens to find peaceful means for national, group, and individual self-determination.

In this book of specially commissioned essays, twenty world leaders assess the possibilities and perils of the new strategic, political, and economic interrelationships that are emerging around the world. They tackle such fundamental questions as: What is the future of the international system as we approach the twenty-first century? What will be the fate of disintegrating nation-states, and how will the international community respond? Has the nation-state outlived its usefulness? Are we beginning to witness the complete breakdown of the international system?

The contributors are:

  • Ali Alatas (Indonesia)
  • Tariq Aziz (Iraq)
  • James A. Baker III (United States)
  • Benazir Bhutto (Pakistan)
  • Boutros Boutros-Ghali (United Nations)

About the Author:

Keith Philip Lepor, of Boston, Massachusetts, is a global business and public policy advisor and consultant to international companies. He holds an M.Litt. in International Relations (Comparative East Asian Economic Development Strategies) from St. Antony’s College, Oxford University, and an M.A. in Middle Eastern Studies from the American University in Cairo.

Review:

"In an ambitious attempt to characterize andunderstand the unprecedented changes in the post-Cold War global order, the editor has amazingly collected the perspectives of 20 notable (and busy) world leaders and diplomats. Contributors range from Mikhail Gorbachev (once president of the USSR) and former US Secretary of State James Baker to various Third World heads of state, including Fernando Cardoso (Brazil), Alberto Fujimori (Peru), and Muammar El-Qadhafi (Libya). . . . The selections transcend speechifying and mirror diverse cultural, national, and ideological worldviews." (Choice 1997-10-01)

". . . a number of present or former world leaders, predominantly from the global south, write on the state of the world, where it is heading, and the roles of their countries. Although Lepor regrets the refusal of representatives of the industrailized states to participate, the lacuna is not debilitating: their views are readily available and widely known. This collection's value lies precisely in the unmediated presentation of perspectives from representatives of the global south." (Middle East Insight 1998-01-01)

"This look at how many of the world's leaders view the developing 'world order' in the aftermath of the Cold War is both fascinating and disturbing. Those who believe that the 21st century may prove to be as unstable as the century we are about to leave will find much to support their pessimism. But they will find, as well, reason to hope that the wisest among us may be able to find a common path toward a more stable and productive future. One reality jumps from almost every page: without the active engagement of the United States in the decades ahead chaos is assured." (Lawrence S. Eagleburger)
