9781403903037: International Organisation in World Politics (The Making of the Twentieth Century)

Since the end of the Cold War, international organisations have assumed a greater importance on the world stage. The United Nations has played a key role in all of the major security issues during this period - increasingly called upon to address other global problems such as poverty and international crime - while the European Union has created a single currency and moved towards the adoption of a constitution. The growing significance of the World Trade Organisation and other economic institutions has led some to talk of the emergence of a structure of global governance; and international non-governmental organisations and social movements are now widely seen as forming a kind of global civil society that both challenges and participates in these developments.

Building on the success of the previous edition (Versailles to Maastricht: International Organisation in the Twentieth Century), this book is a valuable introduction to the complex history of modern international organisation. David Armstrong, Lorna Lloyd and John Redmond:

- pay close attention to the League of Nations, the UN and the EU
- offer chapters on the new regionalism, global governance and international regimes and global civil society
- adopt a thematic and analytical approach to the subject
- provide a concise factual account of the rise of the international organisation

Review:

'Well-organized, well-written, and very engaging.' - Turan Kayaoglu, University of Washington

'An excellent account of the evolution of the United Nations system and the primary regional organizations, particularly the EU, by a team of leading British scholars. This book is a must for all those who seek to understand the character of contemporary international organization. It should rapidly find a place on the lists of key texts on this subject.' - Paul Taylor, The London School of Economics and Political Science

'An excellent introduction to the emergence and growth of international organizations in world politics.' - Marianne Hanson, University of Queensland

'In International Organisation in World Politics, Armstrong, Lloyd and Redmond chart this contradiction at the heart of international politics from the post-war creation of The League of Nations via the development of the UN to the eventual construction of a fully-formed European Union. In doing so, they provide a thorough and informative guide to the patterns of global governance in the post-war period.' - Paul Riseborough, Journal of European Affairs
