Praise for the Sixth Edition Kelly-Kate Pease's comprehensive and accessible text is an excellent tool for students to develop a good sense of the complexities of global governance. The book's strengths are many: It goes beyond a purely state-centered analysis to acknowledge the role that non-state actors play in the process of global decision-making; it applies IR theories to help students easily grasp the usefulness of theoretical lenses to interpret real-world events; last but not least, it offers a judicious selection of global case studies that cover the most relevant aspects of present-day international cooperation. Mihaela Anghel, The Hague University of Applied Sciences The new edition of this well-researched, well-written, well-organized text offers students a careful view of modern international organizations: their historical and theoretical roots, decision-making, and policy records. The textbook covers both mainstream and critical theories in addition to a variety of international issues, including development, trade, security, governance, and the environment. It is also very helpful for my Model U.N. students! Houman A. Sadri, University of Central Florida Kelly-Kate Pease has produced a wonderful update of International Organizations, clearly explaining five theoretical perspectives in international relations and illustrating how they can be applied to explain the outcomes of real cases, from Brexit to the Syrian conflict. A valuable resource for both beginning and advanced students, the book also provides a thorough discussion of the issues facing IOs as well as the positive and negative outcomes of global governance. Stacy Taninchev, Gonzaga University This new edition of Kelly-Kate Pease's text offers an exciting exploration of international politics beyond institutional processes by placing a much-needed emphasis on global action and governance. The enmeshing of theoretical perspectives with a vast selection of case studies results in a dynamic resource that allows students to gain knowledge, test theories competitively, and build an in-depth understanding of the complexity of real-world events. Boyka Stefanova, University of Texas-San Antonio
