Dilemmas of World Politics Summary

Dilemmas of World Politics: International Issues in a Changing World by John Baylis

While there is consensus that world politics has experienced more changes in the last two years than in the previous 50, the significance of these changes remains the subject of much dispute. In this book, leading academics identify the key issues and dilemmas arising from these changes. Their essays reflect the need for a wide perspective, offering analyses of key contemporary issues such as war and technology, the environment, the future role of the USA, the implications of the collapse of the Soviet Union, the role of Islam, the future for conflict resolution, and terrorism. What emerges is a recognition of the need for the international system to address itself to a range of pressing questions - some of them entirely new - with potentially profound implications for the states, organizations and individuals of which it is comprised.
