Building on the success of the previous edition ("Versailles to Maastricht: International Organisation in the Twentieth Century"), this book is a valuable introduction to the complex history of modern international organization. While particular attention is paid to the League of Nations, the United Nations and the European Union, there are also chapters on the new regionalism, global governance and international regimes and global civil society. The book's approach is thematic and analytical, while providing a succinct factual account of the main developments in international organizations.

Review quote

'Well-organized, well-written, and very engaging.' - Turan Kayaoglu, University of Washington 'An excellent account of the evolution of the United Nations system and the primary regional organizations, particularly the EU, by a team of leading British scholars. This book is a must for all those who seek to understand the character of contemporary international organization. It should rapidly find a place on the lists of key texts on this subject.' - Paul Taylor, The London School of Economics and Political Science 'An excellent introduction to the emergence and growth of international organizations in world politics.' - Marianne Hanson, University of Queensland 'In International Organisation in World Politics, Armstrong, Lloyd and Redmond chart this contradiction at the heart of international politics from the post-war creation of The League of Nations via the development of the UN to the eventual construction of a fully-formed European Union. In doing so, they provide a thorough and informative guide to the patterns of global governance in the post-war period.' - Paul Riseborough, Journal of European Affairs
