9780199733705: Rethinking World Politics: A Theory of Transnational Neopluralism

Rethinking World Politics is a major intervention into a central debate in international relations: how has globalization transformed world politics? Most work on world politics still presumes the following: in domestic affairs, individual states function as essentially unified entities, and in international affairs, stable nation-states interact with each other. In this scholarship, the state lies at the center; it is what politics is all about. However, Philip Cerny contends that recent experience suggests another process at work: "transnational neopluralism.¨In the old version of pluralist theory, the state is less a cohesive and unified entity than a varyingly stable amalgam of competing and cross-cutting interest groups that surround and populate it. Cerny explains that contemporary world politics is subject to similar pressures from a wide variety of sub- and supra-national actors, many of which are organized transnationally rather than nationally. In recent years, the ability of transnational governance bodies, NGOs, and transnational firms to shape world politics has steadily grown. Importantly, the rapidly growing transnational linkages among groups and the emergence of increasingly influential, even powerful, cross-border interest and value groups is new. These processes are not replacing nation-states, but they are forging new transnational webs of power. States, he argues, are themselves increasingly trapped in these webs. After mapping out the dynamics behind contemporary world politics, Cerny closes by prognosticating where this might all lead. Sweeping in its scope, Rethinking World Politics is a landmark work of international relations theory that upends much of our received wisdom about how world politics works and offers us new ways to think about the forces shaping the contemporary world.

Review:

This is an important and readable book for those seeking a coherent overview of a complex field that brings the relationship between domestic policy changes and global political activity into sharper focus, and sets out to understand better not just that there are networks out there in the Slaughterian sense, but that those networks favour specific economic and social policy choices worldwide. ( Shawn Donnelly, Poltical Studies Review)

This is a remarkably sure-footed book and a thought-provoking read for anyone who is interested in system-level theorizing ... an ambitious book that can be enjoyed equally by sympathizers and critics ... Anyone who works on International Relations theory should have this book in their library. ( Ayse Zarakol, International Affairs)
