Yale University Press, 1995 - 416 Seiten
In this authoritative book, one of the world's leading political analysts who has been Dean of the Yale Law School, Undersecretary of State for Political Affairs, and Director, U.S. Arms Control and Disarmament Agency, reviews the diplomatic experience of the United States and the prospects for world politics and argues that the most vital security interest of the nation is the achievement and maintenance of world peace. To achieve this goal, says Rostow, the state system must be based on a favorable balance of power, and it must be managed by the major powers, or a decisive number of them, in accordance with the United Nations Charter.
