Globalizing Interests : Pressure Groups and Denationalization
Globalizing Interests is an innovative study of globalization "from inside," looking at the reaction of nationally constituted interest groups to challenges produced by the denationalization process. The contributors focus on business associations, trade unions, civil rights organizations, and right-wing populists from Canada, Germany, Great Britain, and the United States, and examine how they have responded to three extremely globalized issue areas: the Internet, migration, and climate change. What they find is that "the politics of denationalization" is a new game with new rules, new teams, and surprisingly broad support for governance beyond the nation state.

"The decision to analyze the responses and strategies of national interest groups to globalization challenges (rather than state strategies or policy effects) fills an important lacuna in the research on globalization and offers important new knowledge on globalization-induced changes in domestic politics. The well-orchestrated comparative analysis produces fresh insights and new hypotheses."
