Twenty specially commissioned essays from world leaders assess the
possibilities and the perils of the new strategic, political, and
economic interrelationships that are emerging around the world. They
address such fundamental questions as: what is the future of the
international system as we approach the 21st century? What will be
the fate of nation- states, and how will the international community
respond? Among the contributors: James Baker, Boutros Boutros-Ghali,
Mikhail Gorbachev, and Nelson Mandela. No index.
