State sovereignty has traditionally been one of the central ordering concepts in the study of international relations. This important new book re-examines the theory and practice of state sovereignty against the backdrop of rapid economic, technological and institutional changes which have shaped the modern world.
The End of Sovereignty? explores the evolving pattern of interaction between national, subnational and transnational actors and the continued relevance of the notion of sovereignty to an understanding of contemporary politics. In the process, the book offers an important contribution to political theory, new insights into the emerging world political system, and a challenging analysis of the new macropolitical agenda.

Joseph A. Camilleri, Emeritus Professor, La Trobe University, Melbourne, Australia and Jim Falk, Professor and Director, Australian Centre for Science, Innovation and Society (ACSIS), University of Melbourne, AustraliaReview:
`The end of sovereignty is . . . especially welcome. This is an extremely useful book which brings together insights from the differing disciplines of economics, politics and science. It should be consulted by all those concerned with contemporary international relations.' -- Ken Cosgrove, International Affairs `Joseph Camilleri and Jim Falk have written an incisive and vigorous book which is essential to an understanding of political ecology. They show how strongly state sovereignty is currently being assailed by the forces of economic and technical globalisation. It is also being undermined by the ecological crisis which affects the whole of the biosphere, its waters, forests, earth and atmosphere. I strongly recommend the book' -- Jean Chesneaux `For students of politics and the policy process, this is an important grounding in international `globalization' themes; the analytical content will challenge students, through one of the book's key strengths is that the style is accessible throughout.' -- Dr R. Sibeon, University of Liverpool, UK
