“While your computer spell-checker still does not like the term, ‘multilateralism’ has moved from the periphery to the mainstream of foreign policy concerns by major and minor powers alike. The New Dynamics of Multilateralism is essential reading for all serious students of world politics and global governance.” —Prof. Thomas G. Weiss, The CUNY Graduate Center
“This is a comprehensive and compelling account of multilateralism and its changing role in the conduct of diplomacy, the operations of international institutions, and the construction of patterns of regional and global governance. The editors showcase diverse theoretical perspectives on multilateralism and the practical experiences of those who have actually been engaged in it. In so doing, they provide us with a volume that is both accessible to students and indispensible to scholars and practitioners alike as they seek to come to grips with the shifting shape of world politics in the 21st century.” —Paul Sharp, Professor and Head of Political Science, University of Minnesota, Duluth
“The main value of the book lies in how it takes a multilayered approach to assessing the recent evolution of multilateralism. It is essential to look into the new dynamics of multilateralism by examining the roles of states, NGOs, and the secretariats of international organizations and how they interact. The book does this extremely well, and is very useful reading.” —Jean-Marc Coicaud, Director, United Nations University Office at the United Nations in New York
“This book is an important addition to the growing body of literature and commentary on the changing nature of multilateralism, and is particularly valuable for its description and analysis of the expanding role of non-state actors in helping to ‘govern’ the globe. It points to nothing less than a fundamentally new understanding of the capacity—or limits thereof—of the modern state to speak and act on behalf of its citizens.” —John Monahan, Executive Director, The Mosaic Institute
