During the 1990s, the nature of world affairs underwent significant change unparalleled since the end of World War II. The decade witnessed neither a New World Order nor the End of History. The new world could rather be characterized as one in which we could find a juxtaposition of order and disorder. It is against this backdrop that this book addresses the future of strategic studies with particular emphasis on the following four areas: the possibilities and opportunities present in enlarging the Western zone of cooperatively organized international affairs; regional security problems and dynamics; new security challenges; and the future instruments and dimensions of security policy. The book contains contributions by scholars working in the fields of international relations and security studies.
