"This book offers a refreshing and ambitious re-examination of the nature of statecraft and geopolitics and contains a number of relevant concepts that can be translated into brand-new research and ambitious policy goals. Building on a number of his previous concepts, the author continues a remarkable endeavour aimed at updating and adapting traditional geopolitical perceptions. Step by step, brick after brick, the author is clearly building a major comprehensive contribution to strategic thinking and diplomacy." (Professor François Géré, Director of Research at Paris 3 Sorbonne Nouvelle and President of the French Institute for Strategic Analysis (IFAS), Paris, France.)

"This book provides a carefully crafted description of how the international system is being transformed and defines the challenges facing contemporary statecraft in handling that transformation. Nayef Al-Rodhan has undertaken this enormous task by defining the concept of meta-geopolitics and addressing potential future problems while making full use of the analytical tools that he has developed. It is a unique and intellectually courageous undertaking that will help us gain deeper insights into the many dimensions of current and future security challenges." (Ambassador Rolf Ekéus, Chairman of the Stockholm International Peace Research Institute (SIPRI), Stockholm, Sweden.)

4.0 von 5 Sternen I have hope for the world in theory, but in reality, not so much... 8. Oktober 2010
Von Bernie Z - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Modern technology has been a boon, or at least affected in some way, just about everyone in a quasi-developed nation. As Dr. Al-Rodhan points out, the lines of communication have linked the world at the click of a mouse, yet it is this very ease of communication that makes it even more confusing and difficult to achieve global justice, among other things. There are other roadblocks to global justice that he points out, such as the freedom to move across state and national borders, an unhealthy environment, power struggles, and many other things. The author presents his ideas based on an enormous amount of research and historical study and he gives valid projections of the future in terms of potentially resolving these issues.

My favorite parts of this book included the end, where he gives case examples and possible solutions to problems that lie within the geographic locations in the examples. I also respect the fact that he quotes other people in the field and I like how he presents his material in a factual manner peppered with opinion that are not just his own. I find myself reading with enthusiasm but not having much hope for the concepts of this book, or any of the books Dr. Al-Rodhan has written, maybe because I just won't believe it's possible until I see it happen. In this book, the author quotes Michael Walzer (pg. 149) as saying that "states operate in a world of conflicting interests and values where they are constantly forced into compromises which are, as we say, morally compromising." This quote is the basis of all that is wrong with the world, in my opinion, and I don't forsee change happening, at least not in my lifetime, but I hope it does. The author, however, does seem to have hope and I'm glad someone does. :)

5.0 von 5 Sternen advise for the politician to handle the problems of today or what type of statecraft is required today? 2. Oktober 2010
Von kratzy - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Neo-statecraft and Meta-geopolitics: Reconciliation of Power, Interests and Justice in the 21st Century by Al-Rodhan is in many ways a synopsis of earlier books and their ideas. Because of this, it is highly advisable to read some of the other books by this author, especially his book exploring the multi-sum security principle. While Al-Rodhan includes a synopsis of his security theory in this book, it is an abbreviated version and to gain a full understanding of how multi-sum security works, Al-Rodhan's book on "The Five Dimensions of Global Security: Proposal for a Multi-Sum Security Principle" is a highly recommended introductory work. It will help the reader digest the information presented in this book.
This book draws in other ways on themes that the author has focused on in earlier books. Subjects such as justice, a more peaceful co-existence and the relative importance of state versus transnational security in the context of human rights all are mentioned in this book. As such the information presented is quite dense and will force the reader to pay careful attention to the various themes and theories mentioned to fully understand the various aspects that make up the author's theory of neo-statecraft.
As always in his works, the author starts with a comprehensive, well written background section and introduces the reader to the traditional theories of statecraft. Following these introductory chapters, the author then starts off presenting the modification he recommends to these traditional statecraft models in hopes of addressing the current problems in a world that has undergone significant changes, not the least of which involve the speed with which conflicts can be carried out in remote locations and how quickly conflicts can spread as well as the new reason for conflicts, such as environmental and natural resource-related conflicts.
Initially the author develops his concept of meta-geopolitics, which includes seven dimensions of state power, such as social and health issues, environment, as well as science and human potential. It is the inclusion of social issues and the environment that present a departure from traditional approaches to statecraft. International relations and conflicts, the author argues, are more complex in today's world and require a more complex framework to allow the statesman to analyze potential causes of conflict. The author exemplifies his theory through examples focusing on several key states. This analysis also leads him to propose the existence of a Tripwire Pivotal Corridor, a geographic area involving several key states that because of their natural resources and passageways are crucial to transnational stability. In this area, conflicts between individual states have implications for world politics and stability in this area is therefore crucial and should be important to every statesman.
Following this analysis, the author then explores the current shortcomings of politics, namely the fact that many statesmen still think in term of the interests of their state rather than the interest of the whole world. This is problematic because of the increase in connectivity between countries and the advances in technology, both peaceful and military, that allow conflicts to escalate at much more rapid speed. The author uses this chapter as a lead-in to a summary of his multi-sum security principle in which he called for a stronger focus on justice. In this book the author explores the idea of just power in which statecraft is focused on "justice for all" across the world as the only way to ensure stability and limit conflict.
Reducing the likelihood of conflict through a better understanding of human nature is a recurring theme of this author. I would call this book a compilation of some of his earlier works in that ideas described and explored in some of his earlier books are put together in a framework here that presents something of a worldview of the author. This book will be challenging to the reader because of the multitude and complexities of ideas presented. But the author, as usual, manages to provide concise, yet comprehensive, introductory chapters before carefully laying out his new core ideas. I appreciated the inclusion of examples and case studies in this book as they allow the reader to better understand the theories presented and the author walks the reader through a practical application of his theories.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Great Book! 28. November 2010
Von Cindy U. - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format: Taschenbuch
Neo-Statecraft and Meta-Geopolitics: Reconciliation of Power, Interests and Justice in the 21st Century by Nayef Al-Rodhan seems to be a kind of continuation of his book "The Five Dimensions of Global Security" which was a book that I enjoyed immensely. People all over the world need to stand up and take notice of Al-Rodhan and his theories. He hits the bullseye of what is wrong with global and state politics. The authors theory of meta-geopolitics and the 7 dimensions of power is a complex framework of how the world should operate. As in his earlier works, Al-Rodhan has done his research and uses quotes and historical facts to prove his point. I am a huge fan of Al-Rodhan and can't wait for the next book!!
