Fundamentals of World Organization was first published in 1950. Minnesota Archive Editions uses digital technology to make long-unavailable books once again accessible, and are published unaltered from the original University of Minnesota Press editions.
This book offers fresh insight into the possibility of one peaceful world. It stresses pragmatic realities; it does not rest on formulation of the ideal.
Anti-democratic forces can be prevented from controlling the future course of world events only if plans are made now for a realistic world organization. The plans must be based on recognition and knowledge of all the problems involved.
Dr. Levi's approach to the broad subject of world organization is analytical, in contrast to most previous studies, which have been historical or descriptive.
With the calm, dispassionate viewpoint of a social scientist, the author upsets such common fallacies as the belief that world tension is caused primarily by clashes of ideologies or that world public opinion is effective in shaping the foreign policies of nations.
