Beyond Sovereignty : Issues for a Global Agenda - 3rd edition

Beyond Sovereignty : Issues for a Global Agenda (ISBN10: 0495090263; ISBN13: 9780495090267)
ISBN13: 978-0495090267
ISBN10: 0495090263

Summary: BEYOND SOVEREIGNTY looks at current pressing global issues that countries cannot solve alone--including terrorism, disease, refugees, WMD proliferation, environmental problems, cyber threats, international crime, and drug trafficking. Maryann Cusimano Love helps readers put global poverty and debt, al Qaeda, human trafficking, failed states, and other headlines into the larger context of globalization, challenges to globalization, the rise of non-state actors, the fu ...show moreture of the state and global governance, and the difficulties of managing cross-border problems in a world of sovereign states. Throughout, the author argues that global issues go beyond borders--and therefore solutions must also go beyond sovereignty.

Benefits:

  • NEW! New cases grabbed from the headlines include the Live 8 Concerts, the London bombings, and Libya's renunciation of its chemical and nuclear programs.
  • The final chapter evaluates a variety of proposed solutions to global problems: state-centric, IGOs, privatization, and public-private partnerships. How do attempts to manage pressing global problems change the nature of the state?
  • Included in the discussions are the roles of major non-state actors, such as the WTO, UN, EU, terrorist and criminal organizations, MNCs, the media, religious organizations, and NGOs.
  • The text also highlights ethical dilemmas of global issues and policies.
  • NEW! Entirely new chapters on refugees, the environment, and combating the spread of WMD and NRBC materials keep the material current and infuse the book with the most compelling issues of the day.
  • NEW! Entirely revised chapters, with updated theoretical discussions on the globalization, sovereignty, and democracy debates, ensure that students understand the scholarship and research on each related issue.
  • NEW! Highlights of ethical dilemmas in world politics and policy focus the student on the practical, human aspect of global issues in a wider world.
  • Each chapter begins with a new, captivating current case that illustrates a global problem in a clear and compelling fashion.
  • Unlike other issues texts, BEYOND SOVEREIGNTY presents essays by leading experts commissioned specifically for this volume. Each chapter addresses the common themes of globalization, the rise of non-state actors, attempted solutions, and the effects on sovereignty of attempts to manage global issues.
  • Each chapter offers policy prescriptions so that students can evaluate the current attempts to manage global problems.
  • The author opens the collection with a clear and concise explanation of the current debates over globalization, democratization, open markets, technology, failed and failing states, and the past and future of sovereignty.
  • The penultimate chapter considers the various institutional gaps that globalization exacerbates--capacity gaps, participation gaps, jurisdiction gaps, ethical gaps, and legitimacy gaps--and discusses ways in which institutions are changing to try to manage global problems.
