This book is a bold and straightforward conversation about the main problems of the modern world order.
Generally accepted international principles and norms are often violated in the world. Global threats of terrorism, the proliferation of nuclear weapons, cybercrime, and irreversible climate change are growing. Richard Haas calls the current situation of the world a “disorder”. But he also recognizes that such position is not something unique in the history of mankind. The author portrays “the world the day before” — our global portrait on the eve of future changes.
The edition first appeared in English in 2017 and became one of the most authoritative texts on contemporary international relations.
«A valuable primer on foreign policy: a primer that concerned citizens of all political persuasions — not to mention the president and his advisers — could benefit from reading». Michiko Kakutani, The New York Times
Robert Michael Gates
«A must-read for the new American president and all who are concerned by the state of the world and the prospect of things getting worse. Richard Haass takes the reader galloping through the last four centuries of history to explain how we got to where we are, and then offers an insightful and strategically coherent approach to coping with and managing the challenges before us. Practical and provocative: a book that sets the policy table.».
The edition was created with the assistance of the Embassy of the United States of America in Ukraine.
