Once celebrated as an answer to the myriad ills of the post-Cold War era, global governance is now in trouble. Its meaning is contested; its record is patchy; and its prospects are limited. Rethinking Global Governance casts fresh eyes upon this once poignant but now languishing concept. Its purpose is to disrupt the simple association between global governance and the actions and activities of international organizations in the post-Cold War era, and to focus instead on a set of questions that probe the intricate and multifaceted manner in which the world is governed: What is global governance? When did it start? What is "global" about global governance? How is global governance received? The book moves beyond the ubiquity and imprecision that has plagued the term and offers an intellectual framework with the potential to improve both thinking and practice. Building on the analytical insights from two of the leading scholars in the field, Rethinking Global Governance provides an antidote to simplistic usage and an authoritative yet readable attempt to grasp the governance of our globe - past, present, and future.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"Weiss and Wilkinson have brought a unique wealth of knowledge and experience to this concise and readable volume on the often misunderstood, but critically important, topic of global governance. It is a must-read for students, scholars and policy-makers interested in the future of our planet and how we govern it."Professor Adekeye Adebajo, University of Johannesburg

"This book asks all the right questions for understanding global governance. Weiss and Wilkinson urge us to think less globally and more analytically about the sources of power, authority, and change in the modern world. Rethinking Global Governance should shake our intellectual attachments to static organizations as authoritative sources of order. A compelling read for new insights into the dynamics that constitute global governance."Beth A. Simmons, University of Pennsylvania
