Globalization has become so familiar that it's the target even of street demonstrations from Seattle to Genoa. It challenges traditional social structures, as international systems (such as the European Union, the WTO or the global capital markets) become more powerful than states and governments. This book recalls the traditional social structures to study and develop ways to meet the current urgent global challenges.

Book Description:

Globalisation has become familiar, the target even of street demonstrations from Seattle to Genoa. It challenges all our traditional social structures, with international systems, such as the European Union, the WTO or the global capital markets, taking power over the power of states and governments. We have to rethink the complex and subtle ideas which have made our national systems work and have made them tolerable. This book seeks to uncover these ideas and to develop them in new ways to meet the new and urgent global challenges.

Review:

'... this is a profoundly thought-provoking work. The scope of this book is immense and panoptic ... all of what is written is engaging ... this is an enjoyable and thought-provoking book. Allott's work has always broken the mould of international legal scholarship in this country, and this book is no exception. The application of his general philosophy to more concrete legal issues is very welcome and will permit the dissemination of his ideas to a wider audience. Even if they disagree with Allott's philosophy, professional and academic international lawyers, as well as students of international law, should read this book and seriously reconsider both the current state of their discipline and how they can move it forward. They will find that it has much to offer them.' Public Law

Book Description CAMBRIDGE UNIVERSITY PRESS, United Kingdom, 2002. Hardback. Condition: New. New. Language: English. Brand new Book. The human world is changing. Old social structures are being overwhelmed by forces of social transformation which are sweeping across political and cultural frontiers. A social animal is becoming the social species. The animal that lives in packs and herds (family, corporation, nation, state) is becoming a member of a human society which is the society of all human beings, the society of all societies. The age-old problems of social life - religious, philosophical, moral, political, legal, economic - must now be addressed at the level of the whole species, and the level where all cultures and traditions meet and will contribute to an exhilarating and hazardous new form of human self-evolving. In this book Philip Allott explores the social and legal implications and potentialities of these developments in the light of the general theory of society and law which is proposed in his groundbreaking Eunomia: New Order for a New World.
