International Governance, Regimes, and Globalization : Case Studies from Beijing and Taipei
In the this collection, International Governance, Regimes, and Globalization, the writers explore international political relations and globalization by using specific examples from Beijing and Taipei. In December 1949, when China was politically divided the People's Republic of China (PRC), the central government was in control of most resources, tangible and intangible. For that reason, our unit of analysis has to be the state, meaning a government or a politically organized body. With the rise of civil society at both national and international levels, applying the international/global governance theory should be closer to reality, because we have to look at both the state and non-state-sponsored dimensions.

The editors of this book have undertaken a Herculean but very important task: to show that international governance will be the dominant school of thought among international relations scholars in the future. This book is well organized and the contributors make a persuasive case, beginning rightly, this writer believes, with examining China's views (the nation that is most critical to global trends) on the subject. -- John F. Copper, Rhodes College This book is well-written and well-organized and will appeal to students, scholars and practitioners. It is a clear, balanced, and timely volume that will be considered a 'must read' by anyone with an interest in Chinese politics and global politics. A solid work. -- Dennis V. Hickey, Missouri State University
