For thirty years, Philip Allott has been a prominent figure in world affairs. As an official in the British Foreign Office during the 1960s and '70s, he held such varied offices as Legal Adviser to the British Military Government in Berlin, Legal Counsellor to the British representative to the European Community, and adviser and representative to the United Nations Law of the Sea Conference. Both a diplomat and a scholar, a seasoned participant and an objective observer, Allott possesses a rare perspective on the nature of international relations. In Eunomia, his long awaited work, he brings together three decades of experience to present a sweeping new vision of global order.
Allott argues that we have emerged into a single, world-wide society, demanding a single, world-wide constitution. He weaves together law, economics, culture, and other elements in global society, offering a comprehensive overview of tomorrow's world. "Humanity must take command of its future," he writes. "It will make of itself an international society which is at last a society, a society whose purpose is the survival and prospering of the whole human race." A brilliant, challenging, and visionary theoretical work, Eunomia offers a compelling argument for how we can achieve that future.
