Abstract

A historian is a prophet of the past, not of the future, and a question about the future is not a historian's favorite one. With all these reservations, a historian is often compelled to trace past and present patterns in order to foresee the most likely arrangements of future events. The reflections presented below (in Part I) do not stem from the intention of the author to speculate about the prospects of Communism or discuss the alternative scenarios for the future of the Soviet bloc. They are limited to a few conclusions which can be drawn from the logical progression of recent events. The reflections in Part II address some current legal aspects of fighting international terrorism.
