The underlying idea of the Fletcher School's Negotiating World Order Project is the need for synthesis of the approach of the "international architect," the theorist of world order, with that of the "diplomatic artisan," the professional negotiator, in the building of a more stable and peaceful world. This book grew out of a series of lectures by eminent authorities (more are artisans than architects), including Brian Urquhart, Tommy Koh, Gerard Smith and Max Kampelman. Not bound by a rigid agenda, they go off in the various directions set by their experience and preferences, but the book is well organized and drawn together by the editor in an excellent concluding chapter. There is no transcendent message, but what emerges is a realistic picture of where the world stands and the length of the road ahead.
