About this book

The "new world order" has become the watchword of U.S. foreign policy in the post-Cold War, post-Gulf War world. The aftermath of those two wars, one almost half a century old, the other only months long, has been marked by new sets of political, economic, strategic and military relations across the globe.

Altered States has gathered leading academics and analysts from around the world to investigate the impact of the changing world, especially on the nations and peoples of the South, the developing countries of the Third World.

These essays provide the most comprehensive guide to the emerging "new world order," with detailed analyses of specific national and regional situations, while never losing sight of the global ramifications of changing political, economic and military relations in a world with only one superpower.
