Security in disarmament by Richard J Barnet( )

22 editions published between 1965 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,690 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The risks of arms control and disarmament, how they can be reduced or eliminated, and the political implications of drastic disarmament are analyzed by eleven experts. Emphasis is placed on the development of techniques for disarming that are politically feasible and give reasonable assurance to each side that the other is not violating its obligations for any serious reason. Three major aspects of the problem are considered: how to get the disarmament process started, and once started to continue it how to retain the freedom of diplomatic action that might be needed to defend national interests; and how to approach the problems of political security in a fully disarmed world.

19 editions published between 1968 and 2019 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,051 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Professor Myres S. McDougal of the Yale Law School calls this examination of the relation of law and violence in contemporary international society " ... a profound, perceptive, and eloquent contribution to the most important problem of our time." Professor Falk places great emphasis on two distinctive challenges to world order--nuclear weapons and civil strife. While developing the implication that even the most powerful states are vulnerable to destruction trhough nuclear attack, he also points out that there is no very firm hope that military power cna be managed so as to reduce the predominance of the sovereign state in world politics.

The future of the international legal order by Cyril E Black( )

18 editions published between 1969 and 2016 in English and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This is the first volume in a large-scale collaborative research project intended to focus the attention of international lawyers and social scientists on the near future of the international legal order. Sponsored by Princeton University with support from the Ford Foundation, the project seeks to stimulate research and provide an intellectual focus for the elucidation of the constructive role law can play in maintaining peace and improving welfare and dignity in the world. The contributors have been urged to engage in their respective areas of expertise in non-utopian forecasting that will enable law to contribute more creatively, by anticipating the range of feasible responses, to the solution of emerging problems in the international environment.

A study of future worlds by Richard A Falk( Book )

23 editions published in 1975 in English and Spanish and held by 909 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The book suggests models of new world organizations that will be necessary to achieve the elimination of global poverty, injustice, war, and environmental imbalance by the end of the 20th century. The book was developed by the World Order Models Project (womp), an international group of researchers and scholars established in 1968 to explore alternative futures. The book proposes a framework for a reformed and integrated world polity, or political unit. It is based on (1) a time frame to be reached by the 1990s, (2) an understanding of present political realities, and (3) a transition strategy for converting present political and value orientations to required future forms. Chapter one explains the values basic to global change, interrelationships among values, acceleration of values change, and the need for centralized guidance. Present trends in world society are explored in chapter two, including population, war systems, ecological pressures, and issues of technological innovation. Chapters three and four suggest models for world order based on state, regional, and world nexuses of power; and propose world systems for security, economics, human development, and ecological balance. Chapter five discusses problems and procedures of the transition to a world polity, stressing minimization of violence and maximization of human well being. Chapters six and seven examine selected aspects of a world economy and America's stake in global reform. (Av)

Palestine's horizon : towards a just peace by Richard A Falk( )

14 editions published in 2017 in English and Undetermined and held by 798 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Falk has been working within and studying the Israel/Palestine conflict for several decades, and in Palestine's Horizon, he looks closely at these transformations, offering a close analysis of one of the most controversial issues of our times. Falk explores the intricacies and interconnections within the history and politics of Israel and Palestine, while delving into the complicated relationships the conflict has created within the global community. He refutes the notion that the Palestinian struggle is a lost cause and offers new tactics and possibilities for change. He also puts the ongoing conflict in context, reflecting on the legacy of Edward Said and drawing on the importance of his ideas as a humanist model for peace that is mindful of the formidable difficulties that come with achieving a solution to the long struggle. One of the most established and authoritative voices on the conflict, Falk now presents his most sustained and focused historical overview to date"--Publisher's website
