"A wonderfully insightful, balanced, and constructive book which will also be an essential student text. Sørensen pioneers in finding a middle ground between those who argue that states are "losing" or "winning" by shifting the focus to multilevel governance and particular issue-areas."--Yale H. Ferguson, Rutgers University
"An important and impressive book, which brings much-needed fresh perspective to a long-standing debate as to the nature of the state in various parts of the world."--James N. Rosenau, The George Washington University
"Sørensen has a remarkable ability to clarify complex contemporary issues. His exploration of the impact of economic globalization upon states in both the developed and developing worlds will be illuminating to novices and experts alike."--Richard Sandbrook, University of Toronto
"This well-written book, which unlike many in the field pays full attention to the world beyond as well as within the OECD, is a must for everyone interested in current changes in political order."--Michael Zürn, Universität Bremen
