Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0761838457, Hardcover)

According to conventional opinion, world government would be undesirable because it might develop into global tyranny, as well as almost certainly entailing bureaucratic overload. This work vigorously contests this conventional opinion on the basis of an innovative plan for a limited world government tentatively designated the Federal Union of Democratic Nations. Although the proposed federation would represent a quantum advance beyond the United Nations of today, it would at the same time operate under some key restraints, such as the reserved right of member nations to withdraw from the Federal Union at their own unilateral discretion. Yunker argues that despite these restraints, the Union would make a valuable contribution to the future security and prosperity of human civilization. He makes a compelling case that political globalization could and should complement the ongoing economic and cultural globalization of the contemporary era. Visionary yet pragmatic, this book represents the most up-to-date, comprehensive, and sophisticated advocacy of world government to be found in world federalist literature. Although Political Globalization is most directly aimed at international relations specialists and policy makers, it will also be highly illuminating and thought-provoking to all those with a serious interest in humanity's long-term future.
