Professor Frans Alting von Geusau held the chair of Professor of International Organizations at Tilburg University. His life-long academic and distinguished career is reflected in this book. He has long inspired others with his insistence that political realism can only be matched with a sense of ethical purpose. This moral dimension of international relations is one of the main themes of the 23 contributions. Academics from the United States, the UK, Israel, The Netherlands and other European countries give their view of a world which faces the challenges of the next millennium. Those who share von Geusau's deep interest in the cultural and moral dimensions of international relations will find excellent essays on this issue in this book. Those who want to enlarge their views on the (uncertain) future of a united Europe will find inspiring ideas and visions in this book. This book demonstrates that what really matters is righteousness and justice for all.
