"What are the right kinds of institutions to order a globalized world, where transnational forces "that have stitched the world together can also tear it apart"? This question is addressed with notable range and sophistication in this collaborative work by three individuals with significant research and frontline experience in the area of global policy-making." Ethics & International Affairs
"What is most innovative is the book's institutional agenda, which comes out of extensive consultations with officials and experts worldwide. This is one of the best efforts yet to provide a coherent synthesis of the security-interdependence worldview." John Ikenberry, Foreign Affairs
" Power and Responsibility analyzes the threats that surround us, but does not yield to the temptation to despair. It rightly points out that in a world of problems without passports, our security and prosperity depend on unprecedented international cooperation, and that such cooperation is within our reach. By accepting that sovereignty incurs responsibilities and by strengthening international institutions, governments can create an international order in which all can be safe and thrive. This book makes a compelling argument for such an approach." Kofi Annan, former Secretary General of United Nations
"The vision, ideas, and solutions the authors put forward in this book have the potential to redeem American foreign policy." from the Foreword by Brent Scowcroft
"I salute Power and Responsibility for undertaking the challenging endeavor of strengthening and improving our current means of international cooperation. This book sets a platform from which to take forward the vital agenda of restoring American leadership and creating a more effective international system." Madeleine K. Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State
"Offers timely, relevant, and responsible advice on America's future foreign policy. The authors address our need to strengthen our alliances and forge relationships based on common interests." Chuck Hagel, former U.S. Senator (R.-Neb.)
"An essential guide to the critical decisions we must make to create a world where all people are secure and can prosper. The authors persuasively argue that in this age of transnational threats, we are compelled to think anew about the nature of power and the role of responsibility. And they challenge us to 'use the urgency of looming existential security challenges to prompt global action before their worst consequences are felt.'" William J. Perry, former U.S. Secretary of Defense
" Power and Responsibility is that rare book that combines a major conceptual breakthrough with relevant and practical policy prescriptions. Scholars, policymakers, and all practitioners of statecraft should take heed." Anne-Marie Slaughter, Dean, Woodrow Wilson School of Public and International Affairs, Princeton University
