"The Great Surge tells the remarkable story of this unprecedented economic, social, and political transformation. It shows how the end of the Cold War, the development of new technologies, globalization, courageous local leadership, and in some cases, good fortune, have combined to dramatically improve the fate of hundreds of millions of people in poor countries around the world. Most importantly, The Great Surge reveals how we can fight the changing tides of climate change, resource demand, economic and political mismanagement, and demographic pressures to accelerate the political, economic, and social development that has been helping the poorest of the poor around the world,"--Amazon.com.

Ascent to Freedom develops a philosophical framework for democratic world law by drawing on the scientific revolutions of the twentieth century, the history of philosophy of law, and contemporary discussions of law, democracy, and human rights. It traces the history of the philosophy of law from ancient times to the present, showing the progressive development of democratic thought that culminates in the imperative for global democracy. It examines the legitimacy of the dominant institutions in the contemporary world (monopoly capitalism and the nation-state system) and points beyond these destructive, fragmenting institutions to a holistic approach for human affairs. It concludes by developing the parameters and the likely consequences of a conversion to democratic world law for protecting the environment and human rights as well as creating a world system of peace and prosperity for everyone on Earth. Ascent to Freedom lays out both the practical and conceptual foundations for a transformed world order that can deal directly with our multiple global crises while creating peace and prosperity on Earth.
