If world order—hegemony—is oppressive, world disorder—anarchy—unlivable, and balance of power—equilibrium—ephemeral, what is the best of all possible worlds? And what is a statesman to do? These most basic of questions, relevant at all times, assume far greater importance, and immediacy, at the present moment, when global politics are being transformed from decidedly hierarchical to less hierarchical, and when global power is markedly shifting, making future international relations the work of many more hands. Seen in this light, all politics are balancing politics.
