This collection begins with Tony Blair's call for a project to re-order the post-September 11th world. It brings together thoughtful essays and agenda-setting proposals from international statesmen and some of the most creative thinkers in international affairs. Contributors include Robert Cooper, Ehud Barak, Amartya Sen, Joseph Nye and Jack Straw. The essays show how a project to create a world order based on universal values will benefit developing as much as developed nations; how our growing interdependence is forcing us to question many of our assumptions about security; and how we will need to develop new institutions to give globalisation legitimacy.
