"A stellar assessment." Central European Journal of International and SecurityStudies "This new handbook could not be more timely. For teachers andstudents of international governance, diplomats and policy-makers,foreign policy gurus and political scientists - and dare onesuggest, elected politicians - it is a book that should be seen asan indispensable reference to understanding the challenges aheadand the context in which they work, and it will give them aninsight into the nature of the multipolar world of which they mustattempt to make sense." Journal of Contemporary European Studies "Essential for those who want to explain why transborder governancehas changed and to understand what implications these changes havefor global politics. Never has such a broad sample of institutionalinnovations been gathered together, and such an empirical baselineis needed for sound theorizing of the causes and effects ofinnovations in transnational governance." Sir ReadaLot "A comprehensive starting-point for understanding the complexarray of organizations, associations, and networks engaged incontemporary transnational governance. It shows us much about whatwe know and don't know - particularly about the impact of thesenovel arrangements. This volume can help to set the agenda for anew generation of scholarship on the politics of complexinterdependence." Robert O. Keohane, Princeton University "The configuration of a multipolar world without the tools tofuel transnational efficiency and legitimacy is highly risky. Thisbrilliant and comprehensive volume enriches previous research onthe transformations of governance in the international communityand it is essential for those seeking to understand the challengesahead and their impact on world politics." Javier Solana, President of ESADE Center for Global Economy andGeopolitics, former EU High Representative for the Common Foreignand Security Policy "An indispensable reference for anyone interested in globalcooperation and problem-solving in the 21st century. By documentingmultiple forms of transnational governance, from transgovernmentalnetworks to multi-stakeholder coalitions to voluntary codes ofconduct, the book describes a growing global infrastructure ofregulation and enforcement. The authors also include arbitralbodies, which undergird a public-private system of law enforcementthat is familiar to lawyers but is all too often left out bypolitical scientists. I can't imagine anyone teaching or writingabout this subject without consulting this book." Anne-Marie Slaughter, Princeton University, former Director ofPolicy Planning, US State Department
