The End of World Order
The End of World Order
By Richard Falk
Holmes & Meier, 1983, 358 pp.

Richard Falk is not one to pussyfoot around the big questions of the arms race, nuclear policy, and world order. He rejects the "realist" position that the national states system is still viable, and the "neorealist" solution of adaptation and reform, urging a breakthrough to a new world order based on human values before it is too late. His ideas are already familiar from his numerous writings, and much of this book takes the form of reprints or expansion of previously published pieces. But they are well brought together in a package, a consistent body of unorthodox thought.
