'This timely book will be of interest to anyone concerned with contemporary international relations and political economy. The authors skillfully marshall a wide range of empirical and conceptual material and present their critique of the new international order in an engaging and accessible way. Looking beyond the rhetoric of stakeholding, the authors lay bare the economic and social underpinnings of contemporary governance agendas.' Dr David Griffiths, Oxford Brookes University, UK
