This fifth and final volume in the series offers a critical assessment of the state of the law of nations. In the 21st century, the world needs true global law anchored in the dignity of the human person rather than weak international law built on the interests of major sovereign states. Little appears to have been learnt from the scale of disasters that befell the world between the assassination in Sarajevo in 1914 and the annexation of Sebastopol in 2014. The failure to learn from history largely comes from unconverted political leaders and ideologies of progress. Throughout the book, enlightening examples of persons who, by their courage and dedication, could make the difference are found. Among them are Henri Dunant, Ruth Klueger, Andrei Sacharov, Nelson Mandela, and Pope John-Paul II. Since the successful and peaceful revolution in 1989 ended the division of Europe and nuclear stalemate, the world collectively entered the brave new world of organised forgetting. Nevertheless, the footprints of that past century are still all around. This reprint is now part of Footprints of the 20th Century-Third Edition series. (Series: Footprints of the 20th Century-Third Edition, Vol. 5) [Subject: Legal History, International Law, Criminal Law, Human Rights Law]
