Overview


Given the dramatic changes in world politics in recent years a whole series of new questions and issues need to be considered. This book focuses on the dilemmas posed by these questions and reflects the rich variety of contemporary research in the field in international relations. It offers in-depth analysis of such issues as war and technology, the role of Islam, implications of the collapse of the Soviet Union, the future role of the United States, terrorism, and the future role of conflict resolution. What emerges from this collection is a recognition of the need for the international system to address a wide range of issues with potentially profound implications for the states, organizations, and individuals of which it is comprised. Its unique format is designed to make it particularly suitable as a textbook and discussion starter on key international relations issues.
