One of America’s most distinguished political scientists presents a collection of articles, papers, and lectures on the subject of world peace. The book is divided into five parts: prologue; three major sections (each with an introductory essay) entitled “American Government and World Order,” “Organizing Peace within a Federal Union,” and “Organizing International Peace”; and an epilogue. The United Nations is thoroughly examined: its structure, achievements, present shortcomings, and potentialities. Arthur Holcombe concludes that the U.N. could—with certain changes, which he specifies—become the body of organized world government needed to end the cold war and maintain the peace.
