This book provides the reader with a comprehensive study of the future perspectives of the international order after the collapse of the Evil Empire. The first part of the book reviews the likely evolution of the international system in the years to come, covering the global implications of the end of the East--West order (political, economic & strategic impact); the second part studies the specificities of the situation in Europe, the U.S.A., Asia, & the rest of the world, as well as the role of some international organizations. The book addresses the basic questions facing us since the collapse of the socialist system: What has been the impact of the collapse of the East--West order on the international system? How will various regions & actors be affected by these changes? How will they react to them? What will be the most important challenges & threats in the future international system, & how can we prepare for them? Gathered together in this volume are contributions from some of the most eminent experts from the academic community as well as from governmental & international organizations, making it a reference book for students of international affairs as well as policy-makers & corporate managers.
