ABSTRACTThe phrase ?new world order? has been widely used on the political scene since first publicly coined by former president, George Bush.Although quickly adopted as the catch phrase of the 1990s, few people actually agree on what ?new world order? really means. Since ?newworld order,? while elusive in definition, is most frequently used to describe aspects of the post Cold War international scenario, understandingthe true meaning of that phrase is critical to projecting our future strategic environment and prospects for the new millennium. The attempt of this paper is to reveal that true meaning. Historical analysis will be the primary methodology used to reveal the meaning of George Bush?sspecific terminology describing his concept of ?new world order.? In a January 16, 1991 speech, he identified the opportunity to build a newworld order ?where the rule of law?governs the conduct of nations,? and ?in which a credible United Nations can use its peacekeeping role tofulfill the promise and vision of the UN?s founders.? These words will be dissected and historically analyzed to develop a clear picture of ?new world order.? Additionally, the primary mechanisms for implementing new world order will be addressed; and finally, specific strategicenvironment and national security implications will be drawn from those conclusions.15.
