After a turbulent century characterized by vast bloodshed, but also by the spread of democratic government and humane values, the author suggests that the great democracies - led by Britain, France, Germany, Japan and the United States - should form an intercontinental community of democracies - a Pax Democratica according to the author. He argues that such a union will culminate centuries of evolution in world order: from empires to balance-of-power Realpolitik , more recently from cooperative international institutions to an era of supranational communities, composed of likeminded peoples and organized around democratic principles.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'This important book makes an impressive case for the construction of 'an Intercontinental Community of Democracies'...refreshingly undogmatic...innovative proposals by which existing structures like NATO might be re-configured and new ones created...The author has performed a valuable service in setting forth an agenda for discussion.' - Foreign Affairs

'What Huntley has accomplished is to introduce a compelling new internationalist vision and present a well-reasoned argument for its acceptance in the language used by decision-makers...Huntley's overall vision of an international community of democracies is the best foreign policy strategy imaginable for America to pursue in the next century.' - Washington Free Press
