Since 1945, the world has moved, haltingly but relentlessly, toward internationalism. With the end of the Cold War and the apparent dominance of the West and its democratic and free-market systems, that march toward internationalism has proceeded apace, seemingly unstoppable.

Ambassador Moller examines the major trends affecting internationalism as we approach the millennium and raises important and disturbing questions about our future.
