People Count! Networked Individuals in Global Politics
People Count! rests on a single but important premise: As the world shrinks and becomes ever more complex, so have people-as "networked individuals"-become ever more central to the course of events. This book seeks to depict a new era by analyzing the basic roles people occupy in their family, community, and society, including the wider world.
“For five decades Jim Rosenau has made scholars and students look at international relations in new and creative ways. In the compelling and accessible People Count!, he continues to do so, reorienting our thinking about IR to the micro-level–where individuals ‘shape and are shaped by the macro organizations to which they belong.’”
--Harvey Starr, University of South Carolina
“People Count is a welcome addition to the small but rapidly growing scholarly and instructional literature that aims to put people back into world politics.”
--Mary Ann Tetreault, Trinity University
“Read People Count! to find out how individuals and groups steer the big processes in international relations. A master scholar, Rosenau has written one of his best books. Truly a landmark work!”
—James H. Mittelman, American University
