This book examines the ways in which nongovernmental organizations (NGOs) contribute to the development and maintenance of global civil society. Basing his argument on the contention that 'people make politics,' the author investigates eight NGOs and connects their organizational activities to global civil society's dynamics and processes. In constructing an analytical framework for understanding global civil society, the author reviews traditional understandings of civil society, integrates these with a classical theoretical approach that places people at the center of world politics, and conceptualizes global civil society in terms of three elemental characteristics: dynamism, inclusiveness, and cognizance.

MEDIA REVIEWS
With the end of the Cold War there is a welcome return to non-realist approaches to International Relations. Warkentin studies the role of NGOs and the Internet in creating international civil society. He describes the dynamism, inclusiveness, and reflective understanding of the political goals (what he calls cognizance) of eight NGOs and their broader contribution to international civil society. -- Peter M. Haas, University of Massachusetts, Amherst
This book is a useful compilation for anyone interested in how such NGOs see themselves or in the details of their operations. It would be an appropriate supplementary text for courses on international affairs and globalization. * International Affairs *
Highly recommended for students in a variety of international relations courses, from the introductory to the advanced levels. -- Charles W. Kegley Jr., University of South Carolina * University Of South Carolina *
