Since the end of the Cold War, international organisations have assumed a greater importance on the world stage. The United Nations has played a key role in all of the major security issues during this period - increasingly called upon to address other global problems such as poverty and international crime - while the European Union has created a single currency and moved towards the adoption of a constitution. The growing significance of the World Trade Organisation and other economic institutions has led some to talk of the emergence of a structure of global governance; and international non-governmental organisations and social movements are now widely seen as forming a kind of global civil society that both challenges and participates in these developments.

Building on the success of the previous edition (Versailles to Maastricht: International Organisation in the Twentieth Century), this book is a valuable introduction to the complex history of modern international organisation. David Armstrong, Lorna Lloyd and John Redmond:

- pay close attention to the League of Nations, the UN and the EU
- offer chapters on the new regionalism, global governance and international regimes and global civil society
- adopt a thematic and analytical approach to the subject
- provide a concise factual account of the rise of the international organisation

Review:

'Well-organized, well-written, and very engaging.' - Turan Kayaoglu, University of Washington

'An excellent account of the evolution of the United Nations system and the primary regional organizations, particularly the EU, by a team of leading British scholars. This book is a must for all those who seek to understand the character of contemporary international organization. It should rapidly find a place on the lists of key texts on this subject.' - Paul Taylor, The London School of Economics and Political Science
'An excellent introduction to the emergence and growth of international organizations in world politics.' - Marianne Hanson, University of Queensland

'In International Organisation in World Politics, Armstrong, Lloyd and Redmond chart this contradiction at the heart of international politics from the post-war creation of The League of Nations via the development of the UN to the eventual construction of a fully-formed European Union. In doing so, they provide a thorough and informative guide to the patterns of global governance in the post-war period.' - Paul Riseborough, Journal of European Affairs

Synopsis:

Building on the success of the previous edition (Versailles to Maastricht: International Organization in the Twentieth Century), this book is a valuable introduction to the complex history of modern international organization. While particular attention is paid to the League of Nations, the United Nations and the European Union, there are also chapters on the new regionalism, global governance and international regimes and global civil society. The book's approach is thematic and analytical, while providing a succinct factual account of the main developments in international organizations.
