Editorial Reviews

Library Journal
As the world's nations and peoples become more interconnected, the conditions in which they live and function are often very different. Those dual trends are the theme of Hauchler, a member of the German parliament, and Kennedy, a professor of international studies at Yale. They pull together an impressive array of development statistics to assess the "performance of the international system... and point out the steps...to bring about global governance." The categories covered range from religion to work to population, from the environment to finance to emerging technologies. Within these and other categories, they look at many more topics, although sketchedly at best. Readers seeking greater depth of analysis should look to the annual WorldWatch reports on the State of The World (Norton, 1984+). The global perspective offered can provide U.S. citizens points of comparison as they assess the performance of their own social and economic systems. Recommended for college and larger public libraries.Bill Rau, Takoma Park, Md.
