'After disciplines, disciplinarity, what can we say about the international? Instead of 'essentialist or transcendental causalities,' how can we possibly know what we are talking about? This book uncovers 'transversal lines' and more-mobilities, ruptures, transitions-and it does so without the old and broken crutches.' - Nicholas Onuf, Professor, Florida International University, USA

'International Political Sociology is only twenty years old as a field, but it has already yielded more penetrating modes of inquiry, cogent analytic approaches and suggestive theorizing than seems within the capabilities of its three established nominal elements -- or any combination of them. This is at once a demonstration of what has been achieved to date and an invitation to building on, expanding -- and, yes, challenging -- those achievements.' - Martin O. Heisler, Professor Emeritus, University of Maryland, USA

'This important collection presents a rich new way of looking at the major problems of international relations, security studies and political sociology through the lens of such major social theorists as Foucault and Bourdieu. The result is a new approach to such themes as borders, surveillance and big data which are central challenges for the social sciences today.' - Arjun Appadurai, Professor, New York University, USA 'This book is an outstanding, thought provoking and much needed contribution to studies on security, politics and the international. By exploring how to think sociologically about politics, the work of this excellent group of researchers invites us to question established ideas and concepts in international politics, to explore new empirical endeavors, and to envision alternative forms of power and authority. In short, it does what at the outset seems impossible: it helps us to understand the particularity of the field of 'International Political Sociology', while still leaving open possibilities for observing new and interesting developments in world politics.' - Karen Lund Petersen, Copenhagen University, Denmark
