"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.
