A New International Order: Proposals for Making a Better World.
Suter, Keith D.
The inability of national governments to solve the world's major problems is examined, and various suggestions for solving the problems through an international government and transnational action are discussed. There are four chapters. Chapter 1 discusses changes in international relations which are resulting in a collapse of the "Old Order," for example, nations are no longer masters of their own destinies. Chapters 2 and 3 evaluate the United Nations and other schemes or groups with transnational perspectives, such as World Federalists, Global Citizens Association, Esperanto, which might provide common actions to solve common problems. The concluding chapter describes Alvin Toffler's optimistic forecast of the way in which the world could be heading, calls for a program to be conducted within Australia to make people more aware of the need for a transnational perspective, emphasizes the importance of further education, and points out the need for each person to accept the personal imperative to work for a better world.
