Global Democracy: The Case for a World Government

Book cover Global Democracy: The Case for a World Government
Author: Torbjörn Tännsjö
Publisher: Paperback
Year: 2008

Is world government the answer to pressing global issues such as war, global injustices and environmental problems? Torbjörn Tännsjö presents the case for this idea.The notion of a sovereign world government has been defended in the past by philosophers such as Bertrand Russell and A.C. Ewing, but has been eclipsed by less radical ideas to do with peaceful cooperation between sovereign states or, at most, through systems of shared sovereignty.
