Editorial Reviews

Review

"This path-breaking collaborative work illuminates complex social and political relationships that constitute governing authority in a changing world. New questions provoke deeper reflection than the term 'global governance' typically stimulates. Specialists need to read this fine book, and so do students."
Louis W. Pauly, Canada Research Chair in Globalization and Governance, University of Toronto

"This volume makes and illustrates an important fact about global governance today: it isn't only or always the institutional form of actors - be they states, corporations, or NGOs - but their relationships with key constituencies and with one another that shape governance outcomes. Authority, the essence of governance, comes in many guises. I recommend this book highly."
John Gerard Ruggie, Harvard University

"... this book is indeed iconoclastic...The book's theoretical framework builds around four uniquely honed concepts: "governors" "authority", "legitimacy" and "accountability", which may invite challenges from readers who may subscribe to different notions of these terms." -Rogerio F. Pinto, International Public Management Review

Book Description

Most discussions of global governance treat it as a structure or process, without considering who does the governing. Who Governs the Globe? offers a theoretical framework for understanding these non-state governors and applies this framework to policy arenas including arms control, human rights, economic development and global education.

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Robert David STEELE Vivas HALL OF FAMETOP 500 REVIEWER on July 24, 2011
Format: Paperback
This is a very fine book that is also available free in conference form (search for <Who Governs the Globe conference>), but of course not paginated, formatted, indexed, and generally edited, all values of the book form.

I personally missed this book when it came out, just as I missed two other pioneering works, Global Public Policy: Governing Without Government? in 1998 and Critical Choices. The United Nations, Networks, and the Future of Global Governance in 2000. It was the appointment of Reinicke to be the dean of the school of public policy at the Central European University, and George Soros' essay "My Philanthropy" (the first 57 pages in The Philanthropy of George Soros: Building Open Societies that focused my attention.

Although I have been a student of revolution my entire life, it was not until 2003 when J. F. Rischard, then Vice President for Europe of the World Bank, published High Noon 20 Global Problems, 20 Years to Solve Them that I started to focus on hybrid governance, and it was in the same year that Dr. Col Max Manwaring edited The Search for Security: A U.S. Grand Strategy for the Twenty-First Century, a book that began my deeper questioning of the lack of authenticity and legitimacy within the U.S.
