How has the process of political representation changed in the era of globalization? The representation of interests is at the heart of democracy, but how is it that some interests secure a strong voice, while others do not? While each person has multiple interests linked to different dimensions of his or her identity, much of the existing academic literature assumes that interests are given prior to politics by a person's socioeconomic, institutional, or cultural situation. This book mounts a radical challenge to this view, arguing that interests are actively forged through processes of politics. The book develops an analytic framework for understanding how representation takes place - based on processes of identification, mobilization, and adjudication - and explores how these processes have evolved over time. Through a wide variety of case studies, the chapters explore how actors identify their interests, mobilize them into action, and resolve conflicts among them.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'This is an excellent, coherent collection of essays unified around the theme of interest representation, in particular the ways in which globalization has transformed domestic reformulation of interests. Beginning with an outstanding introduction by the editors, the volume continues with contributors speaking effectively to the core themes, and to one another. The identification, mobilization, and adjudication processes that the authors describe provide, both analytically and heuristically, an effective framework for the book. I envision this book being required reading on graduate comparative political economy syllabi.' Rawi Abdelal, Harvard Business School
'This volume seeks to offer an alternative way of understanding the construction of political interests, one that differs from the mechanistic conceptions that dominate socioeconomic, institutional, and cultural approaches. It does so by considering how processes of globalization have reshaped interest representation. This work has the potential to influence a wide range of scholars. It showcases the value of problematizing interest representation in the global age, and every single chapter makes an empirical or theoretical contribution to a body of literature.'
