Chapter Summary

This front matter section of this book on the foundations of world order contains the acknowledgements, preface, table of contents and the introduction. This book focuses on foundations of world order. To capture the complexity of international law in the modern world, now pervasive in almost every domain of human affairs, it seems essential to focus on the larger concept of world order. In this book, which focuses on the history of international law, each eon is presented as if dominated by a particular kind of idealistic vision of the future. The cruelest irony of all is that international law between 1905 and 2005 developed into an innovative and benevolent system of world community law despite the succession of the worst catastrophes in world history. This history of world order takes an optimistic view of the future of international legal system.

Keywords:human affairs; international law; international legal system; world community law; world order
