A study of international relations in the context of the pattern of duality in world affairs that has been brought about by the concepts of transnational society and sovereign states. An attempt has been made to reconcile these conflicting systems through the organization of society and state power into two international camps led by the United States and the USSR, but the attempt has proved a failure. The search for a principle of government for the transnational society now focuses on the approaches inherent in the following concepts: the superpower duumvirate, world empire, self-government of the transnational economy, regional integration, and prudent statecraft. 43 pp. (See also P-3662.)
