Communism and Revolution

Communism and Revolution

Author: Cyril E. Black Format: Hardback Release Date: 07/08/2020

In a period marked by growing fluidity between the West and the Communist nations, the role of revolution as an instrument of political and social change takes on an intense, possibly dangerous importance. Owing to the unacceptable risks of international war, revolutions in the less developed countries are increasingly taking the place of war as the main arena of great-power conflict. Thus, the attitudes and policies of the Communist countries toward revolution are of vital concern. In this book, thirteen specialists on Communist affairs consider how the Communists have used revolutions in the past, what they have deduced from their experience, and what prospects they hold for revolution in light of their ideological commitments. Originally published in 1964.

The Future of the International Legal Order, Volume 2

Author: Cyril E. Black, Richard A. Falk Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/06/2019

Wolfgang Friedmann, Burns H. Weston, William T. Burke, and Ivan A. Vlasic explore the new frontiers and wealth and resources that are altering the patterns of the world economy. Since rapid and dramatic technological progress poses problems that can be solved only by international or multinational controls these legal specialists emphasize the urgent need for nonviolent measures capable of reconciling the interests of the wealthy and impoverished nations and of satisfying the rising demands of the underdeveloped world for participation in the scientific revolution. The existing situation and current trends are described, and detailed recommendations to strengthen the role of international law in the decades ahead are made. Originally published in 1970.

The Future of the International Legal Order, Volume 4

The Future of the International Legal Order, Volume 4

Author: Cyril E. Black Format: Hardback Release Date: 20/06/2019

The issues of conflict management treated in this volume are relatively recent consequences of the scientific and technological revolution, and are in significant respects unprecedented in man's history: food distribution, population, ocean resources, air and water pollution. Such new global problems cannot be adequately solved except by international effort--effort that requires adjustments in the present international system. What adjustments arc practicable, and at least minimally necessary, are assessed by seventeen lawyers and specialists in international affairs. They approach the subject from two perspectives: the international legal aspects of man in his environment; and the institutions, agencies, and movements that must be further adapted to the rapidly changing needs of mankind. Contributors: Harold Lasswell, Mary Ellen Caldwell, Dennis Livingston, Howard J. and Rita F. Taubenfeld, L.F.E. Goldie. Leon Gordenker, John Carey, Hans Baade, Gidon Gotlieb, Richard B. Lillich, Joseph Nye, Donald McNemar, James Patrick Sewell, Gerald F. Sumida, Harold and Margaret Sprout. Originally published in 1972.

Author: Cyril E. Black Format: Hardback Release Date: 29/01/2019

The eleven contributors to this volume come to grips with the hard realities of controlling war in our modern, interrelated world. All of them deal directly with the role of law in the management of conflict. From Cyril E. Black's introductory chapter, Conflict Management and World Order, to Richard J. Barnet's concluding chapter, Toward the Control of International Violence: The Limits and the Possibilities of Law, each expert moves from analysis of some immediate problem of international legal control to the direct application of law to war. The contributors include Tom J. Farer, Rosalyn Higgins, John Norton Moore, Daniel Wiles, William B. Bader, Arnold Kramish, Mason Willrich, W. Michael Reisman, and Harold Feiveson. Conflict Management is the third volume in a large-scale collaborative research project intended to focus the attention of international lawyers and social scientists on the near future of the international legal order. A brochure describing the entire series is available. Cyril E. Black is Duke Professor of Russian History and Director of the Center of International Studies, Princeton University. Richard A.

Neutralization and World Politics

Neutralization and World Politics

Author: Cyril E. Black, Richard A. Falk Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/04/2016

Neutralization is a technique for the management of power in international relations: for the restraint and, to a degree, regulation of the exercise of power in areas that become focal points of competitive struggle. In this volume four leading scholars assess the potential uses of neutralization in the contemporary world. In interlocking essays the authors discuss the functions of neutralization, relevant historical precedents, preconditions for its establishment, methods of negotiating neutralization, maintenance of neutralization, and the prospects for neutralization in Southeast Asia today. Originally published in 1968.

Author: Cyril E. Black Format: Hardback Release Date: 19/04/2016

This is the first volume in a large-scale collaborative research project intended to focus the attention of international lawyers and social scientists on the near future of the international legal order. Sponsored by Princeton University with support from the Ford Foundation, the project seeks to stimulate research and provide an intellectual focus for the elucidation of the constructive role law can play in maintaining peace and improving welfare and dignity in the world. The contributors have been urged to engage in their respective areas of expertise in non-utopian forecasting that will enable law to contribute more creatively, by anticipating the range of feasible responses, to the solution of emerging problems in the international environment.

Rebirth

Rebirth

Author: Cyril E. Black, Jonathan E. Helmreich, Robert D. English, A. James McAdams Format: Paperback / softback Release Date: 22/10/1999

Rebirth: A History of Europe Since World War II examines the transition of Europe from a period of crisis to an era of political confidence and economic strength. As the title suggests, the pervasive theme of the book is that of rebirth. The most recent decades are set in the context of modern European history as a whole. The authors trace the disillusionment and uncertainty that overcame Europe at the turn of the twentieth century and that culminated in the devastation of the Second World War. In their analysis of the political and economic causes of the renaissance that has followed the demise of the Cold War, the authors highlight the themes of national integration and economic modernization.The chapters are uniquely organized to present both international and domestic developments in Europe as coherent wholes as well as the importance of their interaction. The initial analysis of key international developments in the twentieth century helps students to understand the relationship between foreign and domestic events and provides background for the substantial discussion of the major European countries that follows in chapters devoted to each national experience. The political and economic histories of these nation-states are considered in terms of their individual traditions and challenges, and the authors explore difficult issues such as the overall costs and benefits of the scientific-technological revolution, the pursuit of social justice, the proper role of the state and of political parties, and contrasting national paths of economic and political development.Rebirth is designed as a text for use in courses on modern European history ? especially twentieth-century Europe ? and for students of comparative politics who are seeking a substantial consideration of the historical factors of European politics. In this revised edition, the authors have updated the text with an analysis of developments since 1991 and added recent scholarship to the lists of Suggested Readings.

The Modernization of Inner Asia

The Modernization of Inner Asia

Author: Cyril E. Black, Louis Dupree, Elizabeth Endicott-West, Daniel C. Matuszewski Format: Hardback Release Date: 31/10/1991

Inner Asia - in premodern times the little-known land of nomads and semi-nomads - has moved to the world's front page in the 20th century as the complex struggles for the future of Afghanistan, Soviet Central Asia, Tibet and other territories make clear. But because Inner Asia as a whole is divided among several states politically and among area specialists academically, broad perspectives on recent events are difficult to find. This work treats the region as a single unit, providing both an account of the region's past and an analysis of its present and its prospects in a thematic, rather than a strictly country-by-country manner.
