Reviews

'Controlling Institutions develops an original and persuasive theory about informal governance and power in world politics. Anyone who wants to understand how international organizations really operate should read this book.' Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University
'The United States has long exercised disproportionate power within key international institutions. In this rigorous and compelling account, Randall Stone explains, for the first time, the sources of America's informal influence over global governance.' Miles Kahler, Rohr Professor of Pacific International Relations, University of California, San Diego
'Cogently combining innovative theory, statistical analysis, and case studies, Stone pries open the black box of how the United States has gained so much influence over the behavior of international organizations such as the IMF.' Thomas D. Willett, Horton Professor of Economics at The Claremont Colleges
