Directions of Change in the World Strategic Order: Comment on Address by Professor Kaiser

  • Yehoshafat Harkabi
Part of the Adelphi Papers book series


Professor Kaiser summarized authoritatively and with delicacy of conception the detailed changes in the strategic global order. I shall address myself to the question: Do these changes constitute a historical new phenomenon? Details are always of primary importance; however, we have to transcend them and try to see where they lead. With all diffidence, I maintain that the collective significance of the changes amounts to a beginning of a transitional phase, which for us may seem to be not a climactic event but a process; nevertheless, from a long-term perspective, it may yet prove to be a historic turning point.
