    The Inaugural Conference of the Post-Cold-War Movement for World Government
    in Federalist Debate (The) , Year XXIX, Number 3, November 2016 ,  2016
    What happened at the Brisbane conference on the Practical Politics of Global Integration, held on 13-14 June 2016,1 and is happening within the ranks of international-relations scholars, is the emergence of a school of thinking about world politics that goes beyond global governance (itself dating only to 1995) to that of global government. Books like those below mark a historic beginning of renewed efforts to restore the ideal of world government to respectability among international relations scholars, historians, and national government officials. Historically, the ideal of world federal government was at a height at the end of the Second World War when the liberal and socialist democracies were united and the United Nations to keep the peace was established , but the breakup of the grand alliance and the coming of the Cold War seemed to end the prospects of a democratic and constitutionally limited world republic. Nevertheless, the end of the Cold War (1990) opened a historic opportunity to craft a new world order, as President George H.W. Bush said.
