MEDIA REVIEWS

'In this highly innovative book, Olaf Corry provides a fresh take on the problem of world order. Venturing beyond statist and globalist accounts, Corry argues that the concept of polity will help us to make better sense of the structure of the global realm, as well as the constitution of governance objects within that realm. As such, this book represents a significant contribution to the study of order in world politics, and should be of interest to international relations theorists and sociologists alike.'

-Jens Bartelson, Lund University, Sweden

'A superb account that penetrates the confusion of today's geopolitics to find a global polity coalescing around global governance

objects.'

- Martin Albrow, University of Bonn, Germany

'A highly innovative work which adds greatly to our understanding of global politics.'

- Anthony Giddens, Member of the House of Lords

'Corry's Constructing a Global Polity [offers] a fresh interpretation of how IR must conceptualise and situate the state, the international, and the global. Corry formulates an original new model of a 'global polity' to orient IR [and] deserves praise for constructing intricate and admirable new recipes to theorise IR's relation to the global.'

- Scott Hamilton, London School of Economics and Political Science
