9780130454270: International Organizations: Perspectives on Governance in the Twenty-First Century

For undergraduate and graduate courses in International Organizations, International Relations, and International Relations Theory.

Along with a comprehensive overview of International Organizations, this text examines the principles and policies of these organizations from the mainstream approaches of Realism and Liberalism and the critical approaches of Marxism and Feminism. Using actual case studies, it challenges students to critically compare and contrast their own assumptions against widely-held and competing world views, enhancing understanding of the behavior and role of international organizations in world politics.

Review:


"There are many strengths to this text... The innovation o f this hook is that; rather than focusing solely on liberalism, the author investigates how multiple theoretical approarches?both mainstream and critical?would account for the rise in international organizations in general and specific case studies in particular. The author's multi-theoretical cut of specific instances of international collaboration makes this book both theoretically and empirically relevant... The author uses theory to investigate particular cases of trade, security, environment, and human rights cooperation in international organizations. This is a refreshing approach." ? Miriam Elman, Arizona State University




"Pease's book is a nice alternative to other books designed for upper division courses on international organization. The book's focus s on the four main theoretical perspectives is a key contribution to the work." ? Timothy Nordstrom, University of Mississippi




"The text does a very ,good job, after two chapters dedicated to central theoretical approaches in the study of international politics, of covering major international organizations central to global relations. Individual chapters deal with all relevant areas of concern, including security, trade, development, environment, and human rights." ? Ali K. Abootalebi, University of Wisconsin
