"Stephen Krasner weighs in on a growing debate over the continued relevance of sovereignty today. Is it declining or not? Is the state system about to be replaced by something else? Krasners book will spark much debate and become required reading for all those who wish to think seriously about the nature of sovereignty today."--Hendrik Spruyt, Columbia University
"Sovereignty: Organized Hypocrisy is a book with a provocative theme that is tracked through a variety of interesting cases to a conclusion that may help to clarify contemporary discussions of a central theoretical and practical issue in the discipline. It is likely to become a standard example of mainstream realist efforts to address the current generation of arguments that globalization is producing fundamental change in international relations."--Jack Donnelly, University of Denver--This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.
