About the Author:

Georg Sørensen is a Professor of Political Science, Aarhus University, Denmark.

Review:

"A wonderfully insightful, balanced, and constructive book which will also be an essential student text. Sørensen pioneers in finding a middle ground between those who argue that states are "losing" or "winning" by shifting the focus to multilevel governance and particular issue-areas."--Yale H. Ferguson, Rutgers University

"An important and impressive book, which brings much-needed fresh perspective to a long-standing debate as to the nature of the state in various parts of the world."--James N. Rosenau, The George Washington University

"Sørensen has a remarkable ability to clarify complex contemporary issues. His exploration of the impact of economic globalization upon states in both the developed and developing worlds will be illuminating to novices and experts alike."--Richard Sandbrook, University of Toronto
"This well-written book, which unlike many in the field pays full attention to the world beyond as well as within the OECD, is a must for everyone interested in current changes in political order."--Michael Zürn, Universität Bremen

Book Description Palgrave MacMillan, United Kingdom, 2004. Paperback. Condition: New. 2003 ed.. Language: English. Brand new Book. Recent years have seen a range of theoretical challenges to traditional notions of state sovereignty and a burgeoning debate about the power of the state in the face of globalization and new forms of governance. In this important new text, Georg Sorensen provides a systematic assessment of the contemporary state, steering a middle course between those who argue the state is in retreat and their critics. In so doing he sheds new light on just what is actually changing in the nature of sovereign statehood, on changes in the relative power of different states and on the changing relationship between the domestic and external aspects of state power.
