The author offers a strongly critical interpretation of RawlsÕ last book, Il diritto dei popoli, in four points which correspond, in his opinion, to the main flaws and limits of the book itself, that is 1) an inadequate knowledge of the bimillenarian discussion on ius gentium, inadequacy which is the source of all the conceptual confusions that the book shows; 2) la claim of an implausible Kantian origin of the analysis and the proposal put forward; 3) the incoherence of the typology of Çfive national societiesÈ which derives from the showy confusion between the two concepts of ÇpeopleÈ and ÇstateÈ; 4) the liberal position which hinders a thorough analysis of the planetÕs true big economic, political and strategic problems.
