What People are Saying About This
‘In Mapping the New World Order, Thomas J. Volgyand his colleagues answer one of the central questions ofcontemporary politics: Has the constellation of intergovernmentalorganizations (IGOs) changed since the end of the Cold War –and if so, how? To answer this question, the authors draw upon newdata and new methods to map the births, deaths, regionalconcentrations, memberships and effects of formal IGOs from theCold War to the 2000s, revealing subtle changes but also remarkablecontinuity in the basic institutional architecture of the post-ColdWar world. Essential reading for any student of globalgovernance.’–Mark A. Pollack, Temple University
