The New World Order and Global Public Administration: A Critical Essay

The concept of a New World Order is a rhetorical device that is not new. In fact, it is as old as the notion of empire building in ancient times. When Cyrus the Great conquered virtually the entire known world and expanded his “World-State” Persian Achaemenid Empire, his vision was to create a synthesis of civilization and to unite all peoples of the world under the universal Persian rule with a global world order characterized by peace, stability, economic prosperity, and religious and cultural tolerance. For two centuries that world order was maintained by both military might and Persian gold: Whenever the military force was not applicable, the gold did the job; and in most cases both the military and the gold functioned together (Frye, 1963, 1975; Farazmand, 1991a). Similarly, Alexander the Great also established a New World Order. The Romans and the following mighty empires had the same concept in mind. The concept was also very fashionable after World Wars I and II. The world order of the twentieth century was until recently a shared one, dominated by the two superpowers of the United States and the USSR.

The New World-Order

EVENTS of the post-War period are forcibly and unmistakably driving home the lesson that the future welfare of the human race is vitally dependent upon world co-operation. The days of self-sufficient nationalism, of splendid isolation, of Monroe doctrines, are clearly numbered, and it is widely felt that the more quickly such venerable creeds are abandoned the brighter will become the prospect for civilisation at large. How soon events will force the political unity that, in some form or other, appears inevitable, it would be rash to prophesy; but if the process of unification is to succeed, it can only be upon a previous basis of intellectual sympathy and understanding. It is in the intense realisation of this cardinal fact that Prof. Marvin and his fellow-thinkers are striving to establish a wider outlook among the educated classes; and the signs indicate that they are meeting with an encouraging response even in the most conservative quarters. Personal contact between scholars of different countries is so sure a method of breaking down the barriers of ignorance and prejudice that the present difficulties of foreign travel are to be deplored; but such books as this and the previous volumes of the “Unity Series” show what might be done by the printed word if sufficient enthusiasm and funds were available.
