This title was first published in 2000: An important look at the complexity of the challenges faced by the international system at the beginning of the new millennium. The shape of the New World Order is being driven largely by forces unleashed through factors such as economic globalization and technological development. The book emphasizes the importance of interdisciplinary analysis in order to understand the extent and diversity of the factors which condition the dynamics of this transformation. Essential reading for students of human rights, security, finance and technology.


’This useful and insightful volume is highly recommended for students of globalization, including scholars, policy makers, and business executives.’ Oles M. Smolansky, Lehigh University, USA ’This is a useful collection of papers on globalization and the changing face of international relations…’ Aslib Book Guide
