Abstract:

The notion of a single political organization encompassing the whole of humanity-a world state-has intrigued mankind since earliest recorded history. This book seeks to provide a concise yet comprehensive overview of the history of world government, and evaluate whether political globalization, in the form of a federal world government, can complement the ongoing processes of economic and cultural globalization?While the potential peacekeeping advantage of such a state is obvious, the consensus judgment has always been against it, suggesting it could lead to totalitarian tyranny. Yunker analys.
