Overview

Bringing together an outstanding group of thinkers, Worlds in Collision is the essential book for understanding the debate about the future of global order in the wake of international terrorism and the war in Afghanistan. When the victim of such horrific terror attacks happens to be the world's only superpower, the agenda is set for the future global order. This book will help readers understand the ways in which our worlds collided on September 11, 2001. Not only does it comprehensively address the first phase of the war against international terrorism, the book also looks at the wider regional and global ramifications. Worlds in Collision is ultimately about more than the war on terrorism, it concerns itself with the possibilities for re-shaping global order on the basis of new kinds of politics.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"As we try to understand September 11, 2001, it would be hard find a more diverse and interesting set of authors than those assembled here. Agree or disagree, you are bound to learn from them." Joseph S. Nye, Jr. author of The Paradox of American Power and former Assistant Secretary of Defense
Publishers Weekly
Noam Chomsky, Benjamin Barber, Jean Bethke Elshtain and Sissela Bok are among the better-known contributors to this volume, edited by two academic specialists in international relations, and represent the range of approaches covered: political, ethical, legal, economic. Can globalization help in the war against terror? Can we still find common values? These are among the questions confronted by an international group of scholars.
