    `This is a very important collective volume of interest for scholars on international relations, but also of public policy, which could be a starting point for many new research projects' - Stella Ladi, University of York

    `There are distinguished empirical theoretical contributions in this volume that break new ground. Michael Nicholson's piece on rational choice theory is the best thing I have ever read justifying such an approach to International Organizations' - Andrew Williams, University of Kent at Canterbury
