Review

Undoing chaos and confusion As humanity moves inexorably into a new millennium, there is widespread awakening and concern about its fate and its destiny in the light of the happenings of the past centuries. There are mixed feeling about our immediate future and also gloomy prognostications. Many outstanding thinkers and authors have expressed their anxieties, hopes and aspirations. Pierre Tielhard d'Chardin, Mahatma Gandhi, Shoghi Effendi, Jonathan Schell, Paul Kennedy, Samuel Huntington, Alvin Toffler, Vaclav Havel and now we may add to this list, Vinod Saighal.

The book is a brilliant catalogue of recommendations for reversing the present-day dangerous trends through re-thinking of some of the institutions at the world level. Among them, the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice should be extended to all matters relating to global environment, environmental policing of eco-fragile areas by the UN Environmental Protection Forces, restoration along waterways etc.

While the book is full of such practical suggestions, translating them into action requires profound soul searching and acceptance on the part of the majority of humanity that it is in our power to change, just as it has been humanity's own doing that has brought about the present situation of chaos and confusion. -- Dr. A K Merchant, Member Bahai World Council, The Pioneer, 23 October 1999, National newspaper in India

With the end of the cold war and resultant contradictory trends of increased globalization and growing fragmentation, United Nations efforts to coordinate and sustain the strengthening of international peace and security have gained in significance. Several recent studies have advocated a culture of prevention and emphasized the centrality of United Nations, while recognizing the need to reforming certain aspects of the Organization, so that the international community will be better prepared for the manifold changes that lie ahead.

In Third Millennium Equipoise, Vinod Saighal sets forth a comprehensive blueprint for global governance and nuclear disarmament that attempts to facilitate a gradual transition from a culture of war, based on nuclear deterrence, to a culture of peace that focuses on restoring the deteriorating ecology of the planet.

Although Saighal focuses on nuclear disarmament, his real concern is for what he calls the supreme planetary interest, and in the final section, he expands his discussion and sketches out a blueprint for the ecological revival of the planet. Saighals model may seem utopian, for they depend on the unanimous political will of States to give up some of their sovereignty something that seems highly unlikely at the present moment. But the humility of Saighals humanism that is evident throughout his argument makes his book an admirable contribution to the current debate on global stability. -- Horst Rutsch, UN Chronicle, No. 3 1998
