Edited by Pablo González Casanova and John Saxe-Fernández
This special 375-page collection includes contributions on the world situation on every continent in the final stage of the 20th century. Given the failure of social democracy, real socialism, and the nationalism of the poor countries, the goal was not only to describe the world today, but also to identify and evaluate options and obstacles to the establishment of a humanist agenda for the 21st century.
