The article presents abstracts on various articles on international relations. The abstract of article on "International organization and the theory of property rights," by John A.C. Conybeare. The abstract says that the traditional approach to international organization (IO) assumes that a federal world government is the ideal means of solving international problems. The theory of property rights, suggest that many of these problems might be solved by market exchanges and provides policy prescriptions for most international transactions that have the characteristics of externalities. The abstract on "Human nature and truth as world order issues," by Miriam Steiner presents four types of global political theories which includes System of States, Global Society of Societies, Global Community and Global Polis. Each provide a distinctive, logically coherent answer to the question of who we are and how we ought to live. In the abstract "Antarctica: the last great land rush on earth," by M.J. Peterson, increased interest in and activity related to exploitation of Antarctic food, fuel and mineral resources has led to widespread awareness that the current legal regime for Antarctica has serious deficiencies and needs replacement.
