Synopsis

The Berlin Wall has fallen. The Soviet Union has died. And the youth of China are acutely aware of a world beyond the repression of Tiananmen Square. The spread of knowledge through technology has accelerated political, economic, and cultural change.

Harlan Cleveland draws on a lifetime of distinguished service in the international arena--and on the wisdom and experience of his colleagues from around the world--to provide a unique insider's view of the post-Cold War reality and a prescription for international cooperation. Analyzes what works and why in the politics of international security, trade, money, and the environment, exploring topics from the Persian Gulf conflict to the 1992 Earth Summit in Rio de Janeiro to Yeltsin's efforts to cut nuclear arms.
