Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

"De Lange builds on and contributes to the growing body of literature conceptualizing the international state system as a network of embedded actors. Her analysis of United Nations voting patterns demonstrates the potential of moving beyond dyadic similarity to a more comprehensive view of the state system in which each state is connected to its peers through multiple overlapping economic, political and social connections. In recent years, we have finally gone from knowing this is true to having the tools to analyze the state system accordingly. De Lange s analysis offers an important and early reference point in this progression." - Witold Henisz, Associate Professor of Management, The Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania
