The contributors to this volume draw upon the experiences of environmental regimes to examine the problems of international governance in the absence of a world government.
`...analyzes how networks of states, intergovernmental organizations, and nongovernmental actors are responding to environmental interdependence. It is highly recommended for anyone interested in nonhierarchical governance processes in international society.' Robert O. Keohane, Professor of Political Science, Duke University
Global Governance is must reading for anyone concerned with the workings of the mysterious spiderweb of institutions by which the international system tries to manage the rampaging forces of global environmental change. Oran Young has gathered a collection of eight carefully researched and cogently presented case studies that are the latest word on the subject. --Abram Chayes, Felix Frankfurter Professor of Law Emeritus, Harvard Law School "This book makes a strong case that global governance matters. The main contribution of the book is to correct the state-centrism of existing literature on international regimes and to suggest not only that global civil society matters for global governance as well, but to begin theorizing about how effective governance in fact emerges from the interrelations of international regimes and civil society." --Barbara Connolly, Professor of Political Science, Tufts University
