Product Description

Review

“By resisting the temptation to indulge in utopian fantasising, this experienced group of scholars, including Chris Brown, Thomas Pogge and Andrew Kuper, take their role of drawing up a new blueprint for global governance suitably seriously ... the careful selection of essays [constitutes an] excellent collection.”
Political Studies Review

“A timely and challenging volume from a first-rate roster of contributors.”
Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton University

“This volume, composed by some of the leading analysts of globalization, goes a long way towards clarifying the debate on a fundamental topic, often confused by ideology. It is both rigorous and challenging in its intellectual diversity. It will become required reading in universities around the world.”
Manuel Castells, University of Southern California
