About the Book

Traditionally in International Relations, power and authority were considered to rest with states. But recently, in the light of changes associated with globalisation, this has come under scrutiny both empirically and theoretically. This book analyses the continuing but changing role of states in the international arena, and their relationships with a wide range of non-state actors, which possess increasingly salient capabilities to structure global politics and economics.

About the Series

Routledge Studies in Globalisation

The Routledge Studies in Globalisation series is edited by André Broome (University of Warwick, UK) and Leonard Seabrooke (Copenhagen Business School, Denmark).

Based in the Centre for the Study of Globalisation and Regionalisation at the University of Warwick (www.warwick.ac.uk/csgr), the Routledge Studies in Globalisation series examines key questions related to the theory and practice of globalisation and regionalisation. The Series has an interdisciplinary focus and publishes research that is methodologically and theoretically rigorous and which advances knowledge about the changing dynamics of globalisation and regionalisation, global governance and global order, and global civil society.
