Abstract

By the time Professor Morgenthau wrote his book Politics Among Nations, the United States (US) and the Union of soviet Socialist Republics (USSR) were the two superpower. TQ_e demise of the USSR left the US as the only super power. After September 11, 2001, the Osama Bin Laden and his AI-Queda network brought on the world stage a second super power. This dangerous development forced Saad Fagih to remark "What Clinton is saying is there are two superpowers again: the United States and Osama Bin Laden" (Time Dec. 28, 1998:70). With the emergenc~ of the Osama Bin Laden Factor, most of Morgenthau's prescriptions are now bottom up! Since the discovery of the Nuclear Elomb and the emergency of terrorists, the continued existence of mankind on earth depends largely on an in depth understanding of the relations among nations. It is in pursuance of the above objective that Professor Morgenthau produced that compact, intelligent, classical and altogether worthy book Political Among Nations which is a standard work on International Relations.
