When faced with George W. Bush's continuing moves toward an American empire, it is difficult to see a chance for cooperative, community-building approaches toward solving global problems, but that is exactly what Amitai Etzioni argues in this bold new look at international relations. The war on terrorism has helped build the groundwork for a communitarian approach to world politics, and Etzioni shows how it can lead to a new global authority that will be both more legitimate and more effective in dealing with major challenges facing the world than Bush's unilateralist policies. Basic safety, human rights, and global social issues, such as environmental protection are best solved cooperatively, and Etzioni explores ways of creating global authorities robust enough to handle these issues as he outlines the journey from "empire to community."
