The Planetary Interest (1999)
Edited by Kennedy Graham, this book develops a new concept, the ‘planetary interest’. The book defines the term, and develops the secondary concepts of the ‘vital planetary interest’ and the ‘normative planetary interest’. Some 21 authors, academics and political leaders, contribute chapters on their own country’s national interest and its relationship to the planetary interest. In his foreword to the book, the UN Secretary-General, Kofi Annan, said that “the ‘planetary interest’ is the kind of forward-looking concept we need as the world goes through a period of profound transformation”.
