Description

For nearly ten years, The Politics of Global Governance has helped students of international organizations to understand the major themes, theories, and approaches central to the subject. The third edition of this widely used anthology has been thoroughly updated to reflect the current concerns of the global system. Peacekeeping and collective security, finance and trade, and social and humanitarian issues are among the key topics covered. Diehl's section introductions underscore the importance of the essays, which have been selected not only for their relevance, but also for their accessibility.show more
