Regular price $13.50 Sale

The seventh edition of this perennial stalwart of the Kumarian Press list continues the discussion of the new American hegemony and the war on terror that began with the previous edition. In particular, Isbister addresses changes in international politics and the impact on the global order of the US-led military operations in Afghanistan and Iraq. The author also focuses on major initiatives, such as the UNs Millennium Development Goals, to confront the issue of world poverty. As with all editions of this vibrant text, Isbister writes with clarity and passion, not only about failed promises, but about hope, human potential, and the belief that a just and equitable world system is attainable. This 2006 Kumarian Press Paperback is in Good condition.
