Editorial Reviews

Review

"This is an outstanding textbook which places international organizations in a very informative theoretical and historical context and offers a wide-ranging overview of their decision-making, key actors and agendas. It challenges readers to ponder why international organizations are likely to remain the central pillar of global governance."--Chadwick F. Alger, The Ohio State University

"Theoretically informed, empirically substantiated, and persuasively written, International Organization does justice to the complex changes resulting from the increased importance of these institutions since World War II, and especially since the end of the Cold War. This could well become the standard text for courses at all levels."--Thomas G. Weiss, The CUNY Graduate Center

"A compelling and insightful book. Its balanced mix of theory and empirical case studies will enhance understanding of the ways international organizations are changing the very essence of global governance in the twenty-first century while keeping us well grounded in the reality that international organizations are created first and foremost to serve the interests of their members."--W. Andy Knight, University of Alberta
