Book Description:

"International Organization and Global Governance should have a place on any international relations scholar’s shelf. In addition to its sheer comprehensiveness as a reference work, it takes the crucial conceptual leap of focusing not on organizations, institutions, regimes, or any other piece of international order, but instead on the presence or absence of actual governance: the successful exercise of power to achieve outcomes. As one important chapter asks, who are the actual governors of the international system? The answers, with respect to many areas of international life, are surprising."

Anne-Marie Slaughter, Bert G. Kerstetter '66 University Professor of Politics and International Affairs, Princeton University, USA.

It is impossible to understand global governance without recognizing the important roles played by international organizations and non-state actors. This volume brings together cutting edge work by experts in their various fields to synthesize actor based and issue based insights about global governance.

Peter M. Haas, University of Massachusetts Amherst, USA.

A comprehensive survey of the theory and practice of global governance in the modern world. Comprised of outstanding essays by acknowledged experts and filled with important insights, International Organization and Global Governance is essential reading for scholars and students as well as practitioners.

David A. Lake, Jerri-Ann and Gary E. Jacobs Professor of Social Sciences and Distinguished Professor of Political Science, University of California, San Diego, USA.

Never before has a book demonstrated so systematically that 'global governance' offers a useful lens to analyze world politics. Extraordinarily comprehensive, it will become a vital reference for academics and practitioners.

Jean-Philippe Thérien, Université de Montréal, Canada.

This volume brings together contributions from an outstanding group of scholars. It is an indispensable guide for understanding the full range of contemporary challenges of global governance and international organizations, from a variety of perspectives.

John Ravenhill, Australian National University, Australia.

Weiss and Wilkinson have assembled a magnificent set of chapters from leading scholars that simultaneously provides a tour de force of international organizations and a clear guide to conceptualizing and understanding global governance. This persuasive account of the history, power and authority of international organizations should be required reading for all students, professors and practitioners of global governance and international relations.

Catherine Weaver, Associate Professor of Public Affairs, The University of Texas at Austin, USA.

A tour de force… This meticulously conceived textbook on global governance and international organizations with essays by some of the world’s finest experts will be a classic for scholars and practitioners from day 1.

Jan Wouters, Jean Monnet Chair EU and Global Governance, Director of the Leuven Centre for Global Governance Studies, KU Leuven, Belgium.

Extensive and rigorous, Weiss and Wilkinson present in a single volume the history, theory, cross-cutting issues and empirical cases vital to understanding International Organizations. This is a must have for scholars of IOs.

Susan Park, Senior Lecturer in International Relations, University of Sydney, Australia.

Kofi Annan was right: we are creating a global village. Hence, the need for stronger global village councils becomes more pressing day by day. Despite this, few understand how spectacularly global governance—in all its manifestations—has grown and why it needs to keep growing to keep the world safe. Weiss and Wilkinson have done us a remarkable service by producing this volume now: it provides an indispensable guide to the fastest growing global industry. And it will be read and studied for several decades as the world continues to converge.

Kishore Mahbubani, Dean of the Lee Kuan Yew School of Public Policy, National University of Singapore.

The fifty chapters in this book, written by scholars from around the world, provide a comprehensive overview of the expanding agenda and participation in global governance. All readers will become aware of how they are involved in global governance, and how they might respond.

Chadwick F. Alger, Mershon Professor of Political Science and Public Policy, Mershon Center for International Security Studies, Ohio State University, USA.

The reach and scope of this collection renders it invaluable for situating the study of international organizations in the broader field of IR.

Thomas Biersteker, The Graduate Institute, Geneva, Switzerland.
