Editorial Reviews

Choice
A short, elegant, and important book in behalf of multilaterism in U.S. foreign policy. In a rejection of pure realism, Ruggie argues that the U.S.'s view of itself, in particular its idealistic view that it is a force for bettering the world, is a necessary component of sustained U.S. involvement in the world. . . . Highly recommended.
Foreign Affairs
Ranks among the best of recent attempts to describe the lineaments of world order the United States and its partners should build in the future.
J. Robert Kerrey
Puts the years since the end of the cold war in their proper historical context. Understanding the policies, theories, and impulses that affected international relations during this period helps the reader acquire an enlightened perspective on the present and develop a vision for the future. Notwithstanding popular catchphrases, world affairs are never orderly in practice. Yet, with Ruggie's insight, we can at least bring some structure to how we perceive the world.
Choice
A short, elegant, and important book in behalf of multilateralism in U.S. foreign policy. . . . Highly recommended.
Foreign Affairs
This excellent study seeks to articulate policies of cooperative security and economic multilateralism necessary in America's 'Third attempt' at establishing world order in the twentieth century. . . . Imaginative and discriminating in its use of historical materials, it ranks among the best of recent attempts to describe the lineaments of the world order the United States and its partners should build in the future.
Boston Book Review
Meaningful debates about foreign policy rarely factor in U.S. presidential elections. . . . Ruggie. . . neatly clarifies the issues that require consideration. . . . Concisely written and well-argued.
Booknews
This exploration of global politics in the post-cold war world interweaves historical events with current international issues, and presents a vision of American foreign policy into the next century. The author cautions against neo-isolationism and argues for the promotion of cooperative security relations, economic multilateralism, and a new domestic social contract. He contends that in order to succeed in a continued international leadership role, America must again come to grips with the challenge of self-definition. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
Booknews
Reprint of a 1996 work. With the League of Nations and the Cold War United Nations viewed as the first two attempts, Ruggie (political science, Columbia U.) argues for a third American attempt at a multilateral world order led by the United States. He examines the reasons for the failure of the first two attempts and suggest how to be successful this time. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, Or.
