Synopsis: This third edition has been revised to reflect the realities of the post-Cold War period. In addition to providing facts and figures current in mid-1993, it includes new material on: the reshaping of the world order since 1989; international peacekeeping efforts in the Gulf, Yugoslavia, and Somalia; the significance of the Soviet collapse for ethnic nationalism, European security and US-Russian relations; nuclear proliferation; the Earth Summit; sustainable development; Japan's emerging international role; international law and human rights; and refugees and migration. The use of a global-humanist framework to address four interrelated problems - underdevelopment, human rights violations, the arms race, and environmental destruction - remains a key feature of the book, which retains its practical bent, conveying how global politics affects the quality and content of people's lives. Gurtov concludes with a thought-provoking discussion of international security and specific ways that it might be achieved.
About the Author: Mel Gurtov is professor of political science and international studies at Portland State University.
