The World Society Foundation, Zurich, sponsors an occasional series entitled “World Society Studies” to bring significant findings of the research funded by it to the attention of a broad public. The first volume, hardcover, 275 pages, edited by Volker Bornschier and Peter Lengyel, appeared in 1990. It contains eleven contributions.

These authoritative essays are not only samples of the kind of work supported by the Foundation but also provide analyses and historical background to the dynamics of current events, transnational processes and their possible long-term outcomes.
