Description - Stability of States by Nayef R. F. Al-Rodhan
In this study, the authors contend that in our globalised world the stability of any individual state (irrespective of its size and importance) plays a critical role in the stability of the entire international system. There are multiple ways to achieve state stability, whether through western-style democracies or through other forms of good and effective governance that are in keeping with local cultures and histories. Regardless of whichever system is used, it is critical that there are certain minimal criteria of governance that are adhered to and must include human dignity, equality, and prosperity. The book contributes a timely analysis of ways to achieve and the methods required to maintain global stability and provides a valuable tool to anyone who is interested in true and lasting transnational security.
