This volume brings together 20 of Falk’s landmark essays, each resonating with his commitment towards establishing what he calls a system of humane global governance. Divided into five sections, these essays cover a variety of issues: the major challenges before international legal scholarship today, the failure of the United Nations to take the discourse of global democracy and global justice forward, the need to reform the UN, the international community’s focus on protection and sustainability and the neglect of justice, and the untapped potential of international human rights law to achieve global justice. The way forward, Falk emphasizes, is to establish, through global social movements, democratic global political structures in the new millennium. The Foreword by B. S. Chimni is a fitting tribute from a well known scholar of international law. He writes, ‘Falk is an embodiment of a critical intellectual who has never hesitated to speak truth to power.’ Published for the first time in India, The Writings of Richard Falk: Towards Humane Global Governance is a must-read for students and scholars of international law, international relations and political science.Printed Pages: 560.
