Summary

The Global Politics of Power, Justice and Deathinvestigates the nature and complexity of global change. Among other things it looks at the future of the state, the environment, the international political economy, war and global rivalries, and the role of international law and the UN in the post-Cold War world. The book devises a readily comprehensible "change map" which both incorporates a wide range of the fundamental concepts of international relations theory and suggests a number of new concepts capable of assisting the investigation of global change. This new framework is deployed to look closely at real world issues in order to isolate the crucial factors which determine whether or not mass hunger, for example, or environmental abuse, can be eliminated. Readers interested in International Relations and International Politics will find this a stimulating and provocative introduction to a fascinating subject.
