Editorial Reviews


"A very interesting and useful attempt to highlight and expand the idea that the present international politics is moving beyond the state-centrist perspective through myriad globalization processes. Her chapters highlight the diversity of critical actors and critical challenges they post to governance in the international system."

"The topic area is transborder problems and efforts to resolve them. The premise is that open societies, open economies, and open technologies are creating both more transborder problems and providing the means to help resolve them. It is a book about globalization without being nearly as obtuse as most books on globalization, and it has a nice issue-area focus."

"Book covers a number of 'hot' topics in contemporary international relations. It is also accessible to undergraduates without being insultingly simple.... I like the sovereignty/transsovereignty discussions--these are the central themes of international relations."

"(Beyond Sovereignty) provides a balanced menu of selections on various problems falling under this category (transnational issues) including trans-state drugs, crime, environmental problems, and so on." --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

Although a good, informative book, not a quick read. Great to use if it is being used for a class to do Chapter-by-Chapter readings. It was also very comprehensive in the fact that it informs you of what the key terms in the book are and their definition then continues on to tell you exactly what the problem is with this and suggestions on how we, as a global society, can go about fixing it. She also does a great job of tying all of the concepts together.

It was okay overall. A bit wordy but hard to avoid with only a few theories approached. Perhaps too much credibility given to theories yet to mature.
