From the Publisher"Highly recommended."
"A powerfully persuasive book ... a must-read for students of politics, practitioners, activists, journalists, and anyone engaged in public activism."
Perspectives on Political Science
"In Global Civil Society, [Kaldor] is particularly concerned with the importance of nonstate actors in international relations, working within the constructivist tradition of international relations from an activist perspective. When she examines the theoretical roots and contemporary development of global civil society, she is hardlt a disinterested observer. ...In short, in assessing Global Civil Society, it is important to recognize both Kaldor's intellectual honesty and her explicit political commitments. She examines literature and events to develop an arguement about how to promote peace in the future. Thus, this book is a theoretical and political treatise, informed by Kaldor's reading of theory and history and also by her experience as an activist. ...Global Civil Society is a short, sharp read that is organized around a clear argument. It should be a welcome addition to the bookshelves of scholars interested in peace, war, and global civil society."
