International Organization and Global Governance

International Organization and Global Governance is the most comprehensive textbook yet available for courses on international organization and global governance. The book brings together 50 chapters written by some of the discipline’s leading experts, and edited by two of the most prolific scholars, working in the field today. Organized around a concern with how the world is governed, the book offers in-depth and accessible coverage of the history and theories of international organization and global governance, a full range of state, intergovernmental, and nonstate actors, and crucial substantive issues. The book begins with an overview by the editors that introduces readers to the field, which is supplemented with additional introductions at the outset of each substantive section, all seven of which are designed to aid understanding. The book is a complete and self-contained resource for students and faculty alike interested in better understanding the role of myriad actors in the governance of global life and the assemblage of the many pieces of the contemporary global governance puzzle.
