Praise for the previous editions:?A much-needed alternative to the usual treatment of world politics.'?International Journal of Comparative Sociology?Mel Gurtov's enormous contribution is to provide an alternative to the misplaced faith in global markets and the nation-state system as the best means to provide for human needs and genuine security.'?Paul Joseph, Tufts UniversityTraditional studies of world politics emphasize the struggle between states as they search for national security.
