Is world government the answer to pressing global issues such as war, global injustices and environmental problems? Torbjorn Tannsjo presents the case for this idea. The notion of a sovereign world government has been defended in the past by philosophers such as Bertrand Russell and A.C. Ewing, but has been eclipsed by less radical ideas to do with peaceful cooperation between sovereign states or, at most, through systems of shared sovereignty. This book argues that such solutions cannot be effective, and that a world government is the best answer to our pressing global problems. Short, simple to read, and focusing on arguments, not theorists, "Global Democracy" is intended for anyone who wants to start to think about political solutions to global problems, putting them into a perspective that deserves to be taken seriously.

Democratisation must take place at all levels of human society - local, national, regional and global. Torbjorn Tannsjo's book is a contribution to the globalisation of democratisation. -- Boutros Boutros-Ghali The argument is direct, simple (without being simple-minded), and shows how crucially world government affects what we say about global justice, environmental problems, and war. Tannsjo says strikingly, comprehensively, and in a manner that any literate person could grasp, vital things about these matters. -- Professor Kai Nielsen, Concordia University, Quebec Democratisation must take place at all levels of human society - local, national, regional and global.
