By the content mainly descriptive of this book, the author has proposed a coherent and rigorous framework to provide students with reflection on the myriad issues that concern the issue of institutionalization of international relations.
The great issues of humanity are and remain essentially economic in nature, so this volume is an analysis of economic sensitized contemporary society, and a political analysis and appeal to legal issues, avoiding the abstract rules of law. There is also a minimal appeal to history, needed both to explain the evolution in time of some phenomena or situations, and for making probabilistic predictions.
Volume I is devoted to the description of a company interstate establishment and its historic enlargement planetary in the twentieth century, and to the vast problem of international solidarity and universalist projects. The first part of the volume, entitled "International Society", has two sections: "Description of the interstate company " and "Life International". The first deals with aspects of the corporate state; the phenomenon of domination – the imperialism; regulations of equilibrium; the phenomenon of association and integration; the Commonwealth and its uniqueness, a club of preferential trade; the forms of pseudo-state (Holy See and Vatican City). The second section, titled " International Life", addresses the issue of institutionalization of international relations and political principles underlying the relations between states.
Part two of this volume, "International solidarity", has also two sections. In the first section, titled "The proliferation of international organizations", the author tries to find different causes of proliferation of these organizations and make a classification of them, addressing both the issue of their legal capacity, and that of their financial resources (budget, income sources and expenditure). The second section, "Universalist projects", includes the presentation of universal organizations with extended competence (League of Nations, UN) and those of economic conciliation with world vocation (OECD, UN/ECE).
