MEDIA REVIEWS

'One of the most appreciated virtues of civil society is its ability to frame old or neglected issues in innovative ways. Olesen's edited volume provides an important contribution to this debate on transnational activism. Contrasting civil society capacity to frame new discursive opportunity structures at the international level to the resilient ability of the state to exert restraining power at the national level, the book opens up new avenues to understand the power of civil society actors together with its limits.' - Raffaele Marchetti, Lecturer of International Relations, Department of Political Science, LUISS and University of Naples L'Orientale, Italy

'Here is a valuable collection in which top-rate thinkers offer diverse assessments of the place of transnational counter-publics in contemporary politics. It is an important question, and the book offers novel and interesting answers.' - Jan Aart Scholte, University of Warwick, UK
