Building on his seminal contributions to the field, Robert W. Cox engages with the major themes that have characterized his work over the past three decades, and the main topics which affect the globalized world at the start of the twentieth-century. This new volume by one of the world's leading critical thinkers in international political economy addresses such core issues as global civil society, power and knowledge, the covert world, multilateralism, and civilizations and world order. With an introductory essay by Michael Schechter which addresses current critiques of Coxian theory, the author enters into a stimulating dialogue with critics of his work.

Timely, provocative and original, this book is a major contribution to international political economy and is essential reading for all students and academics in the field.

MEDIA REVIEWS
"For thirty years Robert Cox has been at the forefront of developing a critical international political economy of modern world capitalism. A seminal thinker with an immense following, his work in the past has rarely been anything less than challenging. A dissident in a world where intelligent dissent is in short supply, here once again in a set of superb essays, Cos shows precisely why he has achieved--and why he deserves--his enviably huge reputation. A must read for anybody seriously interested in the fate of civilization before and after September 11th.--Professor Michael Cox, Department of International Politics, Aberystwth."
"["The Political Economy of a Plural World] provides a clear, stimulating, and surprisingly coherent expression of Cox's understanding of the current world situation....What is most impressive about this line of interpretation is the degree to which Cox's emphasis on what he calls the 'global cleavage' has shifted from the modernist rivalry among leading sovereign states toa struggle between different classes of people, pitting the beneficiaries of globalization against those who are marginalized and excluded, and who, for a range of reasons, reject the path of globalization."
