Overview

This focused, cohesive introduction to a variety of transsovereign problems addresses those which transcend borders and which no state can solve alone, such as drug trafficking, nuclear smuggling, refugees, and environmental degradation. Written by some of the most accomplished experts in the field, the specially-commissioned essays define specific transsovereign problems and suggest ways of dealing with them. They all tie in to the book's central argument: that in the aftermath of the Cold War, increased openness around the world facilitates the rise of transsovereign problems.
