Jonathan Schell's book The Fate of the Earth makes three basic points: that there is a good chance that full-scale nuclear war could lead to the extinction of the human species, that extinction is of immeasurably greater significance than even the largest massacre short of extinction, and that the nation-state system is at the root of the threat of nuclear war.

THE EXTINCTION OF NATION-STATES Ali Khan* INTRODUCTION Hugo Grotius founded his theory of international law upon the con-cept of territorial sovereignty.' Over the centuries, territorial sover-eignty has played a key role in the development of international legal order.'.

Considered the founder of modern linguistics, Noam Chomsky is one of the most cited scholars in modern history and among the few most influential public intellectuals in the world. He has written more than books, his most recent being Requiem for the American Dream: The 10 Principles of Concentration of Wealth & coming to the University of Arizona as Laureate Professor of 4/5(5).
