The war of June 1967 between Israel and Arab states was widely perceived as being forced on Israel to prevent the annihilation of its people by Arab armies hovering on its borders. Documents now declassified by key governments question this view. The UK, USSR, France and the USA all knew that the Arab states were not in attack mode and tried to dissuade Israel from attacking. In later years, this war was held up as a precedent allowing an attack on a state that is expected to attack. It has even been used to justify a pre-emptive assault on a state expected to attack well in the future. Given the lack of evidence that it was waged by Israel in anticipation of an attack by Arab states, the 1967 war can no longer serve as such a precedent. This book seeks to provide a corrective on the June 1967 war.

This volume brings together ten new essays by an interdisciplinary group of leading sinologists and offers a comprehensive framework for understanding the nature of Chinese national identity in past and contemporary settings.

Now familiar to all is the cry that present rates of pollution, ecological disruption, and depletion of resources are leading inevitably to worldwide disaster. A multitude of immediate needs, however, compete for the staggering sums required to save the environment, and the reduction of consumption which must accompany such expenditures holds little popular appeal. The decisions, therefore, must ultimately be political ones -- but what choices are governments to make? Here is the essence of what Professors Harold and Margaret Sprout term "the statesmen's dilemma." These noted scholars examine the dilemma in detail, exploring a wide range of points of view and developing a reasoned philosophical stance of their own. While their account of what is happening to the world and what we are doing about it is a gloomy one, it is notable that the authors do not entirely despair of man's future. In an epilogue they propose a number of measures which, with luck, might enable coming generations to inherit a share of the earth's bounty. The Context of Environmental Politics is the first volume of "The Third Century Series," a group of books exploring the major issues and challenges confronting the United States as it enters its third century.

This study explores three generations of approaches to ending conflict and examines how, in the context of the failings of the Westphalian international system, their peacekeeping, mediation and negotiation, conflict resolution and peacebuilding approaches as well as UN peace operations, and asks via an empirical and theoretical analysis, what role such approaches have played and are playing in replicating an international system prone to intractable forms of conflict.

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. The Princeton Legacy Library uses the latest print-on-demand technology to again make available previously out-of-print books from the distinguished backlist of Princeton University Press. These editions preserve the original texts of these important books while presenting them in durable paperback and hardcover editions. The goal of the Princeton Legacy Library is to vastly increase access to the rich scholarly heritage found in the thousands of books published by Princeton University Press since its founding in 1905.

Despite the theoretical and practical importance of the question of conflict between treaties, little has been written on the subject. This monograph fills this gap by providing a detailed analysis of the main issues. The book is divided into three parts. The first deals with the definition of conflict, causes of conflict, and different types of conflict. The second part examines different sources of international law in order to identify rules of international law relating to the resolution of conflicts. The third part addresses the actual process of resolving conflicts between treaties. After describing different stages of treaty conflict-resolution, it discusses some special principles advanced for resolving conflicts between certain types of treaties, namely, those relating to the protection of human rights, those concerning dispute settlement, and treaties dealing with private law issues. This work will assist and appeal to both academics in the fields of international law and political science and professionals engaged in international negotiations and treaty-making.
