This text is a distinctly post-Cold War learning tool that will help make sense of the rapid changes now taking place in international relations. The author's goal is to contribute to an understanding of a world more willing to abide by rules and norms, especially as expressed in international law, and a world shifting to an emphasis on the "soft power" of economic influence rather than relying on the "hard power" of military force. While this text is cautiously optimistic about humankind's future as we enter the 21st century, it warns about continuing turbulence caused by terrorism, rogue states, intense trade competition, ethnic conflict, and the antogonism between rich and poor states. The chapters are tied together with an overarching theme that argues the world is moving from an international anarchy based on fear and military power to the early stages of an international society comprised of multiple actors cooperating to solve problems they handle on their own.

Book Condition: Good/Unused/Clean Interior. 1st Edition Softcover, This is a Very Good, probably unused, copy of a fascinating "period" book. As the 20th Century lurched towards its conclusion and doom prophets foresaw the end of computers--Yes! that was one prediction, Henderson prepared a book which drew heavily upon the astounding history of intrnational relations and he endeavoured to explore how "what we had learned" would apply into the new 21st Century. Who are the prospective actor? What will be the role of war and/or diplomacy? It is a fascinating look at extrapolation and theory deelopment and for tht reason, the book has become a modest classic in the field. Bookseller Inventory # 006373
