The Later Security Confederations : The American, New Swiss, and German Unions, Hardback Book

The Later Security Confederations : The American, New Swiss, and German Unions Hardback

Description

In this volume, Fredrick Lister examines security confederations of the modern eras; America's confederal union during the winning of the Revolutionary War; Switzerland's in post-Napoleonic Europe; and Germany's during the turbulence of the Austro-Prussian Confrontation whose outcome transformed the European political scene.

Lister concludes with an evaluation of the possibility that confederal-type ties might one day serve as a basis for global union. After setting forth the nature of confederal-type governance, Lister provides three case studies that follow on the evolution of confederal political institutions in the United States, Switzerland, and Germany.

Each section ends with a series of conclusions on the confederation examined.

A thorough examination of a long-neglected subject that will be of interest to scholars, students, and researchers involved with world government and international relations.
