Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Calhoun and Derluguian’s edited collection is the second volume of a two-part series that interrogates how the financial crisis exacerbated problems in regimes of global governance. Chief among the editors’ considerations is how the crisis threatens to ‘derail action on environmental concerns’ (p. 7). Leading the inquiry is the questions: will states work to create international regulatory systems as a framework for a new world order, or will they be locked into new patterns of global conflict? Contributors to The Deepening Crisis: Governance Challenges After Neoliberalism fashion responses by taking to task the nature of governance in the context of ecological politics, religion, ethnicity, offshoring, the European Union, and media piracy.”-Critical Sociology
