One World : The Ethics of Globalization
 
by Peter Singer
 
In this book, Singer starts off by stating that "the basic unit for our ethical thinking" should be the whole world. "The value of the life of an innocent human being does not vary according to nationality." He asks, "Is the division of the world's people into sovereign nations a dominant and unalterable fact of life?" Singer has much to say about UN reform. He supports an independent UN military force, abolishing the veto and transforming the General Assembly into a World Assembly of elected delegates, with a country's number of delegates proportional to population.

American Empire
 
by Andrew J. Bacevich
 
This small book's analysis of America's foreign policy in the post-Cold War era is unfortunately being eclipsed by current events. Bacevich, professor of international relations at Boston University, interprets America as the new Rome: committed to maintaining and expanding an empire acquired by design, not accident. He argues persuasively that the foreign policies of Clinton and Bush 41 reflected an essential continuity because all three administrations had essentially the same view of America's vital interests and how best to secure them. They accepted an American mission as the guardian of history, responsible for changing the world by making it more open and more integrated.

Refugee Protection in International Law : UNHCR's Global Consultations on International Protection
 
by Erika Feller, Volker Turk , Frances Nicholson
 
Millions of people are forced today to flee persecution. The core international legal instrument on which they must rely to find safety is the 1951 Convention Relating to the Status of Refugees. This book examines key challenges the Convention faces, on the basis of nine papers by eminent international refugee lawyers, which were then discussed at an expert roundtable meeting in 2001 as part of UNHCR's Global Consultations on International Protection.

Israel's Holocaust and the Politics of Nationhood
 
by Idith Zertal
 
The ghost of the Holocaust is ever present in Israel, in the lives and nightmares of the survivors and in the absence of the victims. In this compelling and disturbing analysis, Idith Zertal, a leading member of the new generation of revisionist historians in Israel, considers the ways Israel has used the memory of the Holocaust in order to define and legitimise its existence and politics.

Contention and Democracy in Europe, 1650-2000
 
by Charles Tilly
 
This analysis of the relationship between democratization and contentious politics builds upon the model set forth in Dynamics of Contention. Comparing the Low Countries, Iberia, France, the British Isles, the Balkans, Russia, and other European regions over three and a half turbulent centuries, the book demonstrates how similar recurrent causal mechanisms in different combinations, sequences, and initial conditions produced contrasting trajectories toward and away from democracy in different parts of the continent.
