In this volume distinguished scholars from different social science disciplines assess the emerging international order. The volume's three sections examine theories and strategies of order; the prospects of the major likely contenders for world leadership (the United States, Russia, China, the European Union, Japan and India); and the challenges to world order, including globalization, nationalism, ethnic and religious conflict, environmental degradation, and the spread of weapons of mass destruction. This book thus offers a comprehensive account of the prospects for a peaceful and just international order in the next century.

    A Great Collection!

    One of the best collections on international order published in recent years. The book covers a lot of theoretical and empirical ground and it is a must for all those who are interested in new thinking in international relations by leading scholars in the field.
