About the Book
Ever since the Berlin wall crumbled in 1989, Europe has undergone phenomenal changes.
The old order of a bipolar world characteristic of the Cold War era disappeared paving the way for a new world order. Ideological divide was no longer at the centre-stage of international politics. Equally fascinating developments were taking place at another level –the trend towards globalization phase paved the way for new thinking and ideas in every sphere of human activity. What were the contour of the new world order? Would the Post –Cold War world order be a unipolar one?
The focus of the book is on some of the issues that have arisen in the process of the mergence of the new world order. The collection of articles of Indian and Hungarian scholars provides the reader with a useful insight into our understanding of the new world order. For us in India it is important to know and understand these changes and adjust accordingly. Viewed from the perspective Hungarian thinking on these problems is highly important because Hungary as located in central Europe and a member of the erstwhile Socialist Bloc is today deeply involved in the process of change. Scholars and students of international relations would particularly benefit by these various contributors.
