About the Author
Katja Weber is Assistant Professor of International Affairs at the Georgia Institute of Technology.
"Weber identifies an important puzzle and draws convincingly on theories of transaction costs to specify rigorous answers to this puzzle. This book makes a contribution to theoretical and empirical studies of international institutions and organizations. It also turns our attention to an aspect of alliances that is typically neglected." - Lisa Martin, Harvard University "Important, original, and strong scholarship." - Andrew Moravcsik, author of The Choice for Europe: Social Purpose and State Power from Messina to Maastricht
