About the Author

Thomas G. Weiss


"Tom Weiss's book is published in the International Studies Intensives (ISI) series which is addressed at students and intended "to offer an intensive introduction to subjects often left out of the curriculum." [I]t achieves this objective, and more, by providing an introduction to the state of the field of International Relations (IR) studies and helpful bibliographic leads for more intensive reading. As a survey book, Governing the World? amply illustrates the ever increasing chasm between pressing global problems and the woefully inadequate institutions charged with resolving them."
-ACUNS Review

"Governing the World? is a sure-footed guide to the perplexities of governing globalization. When problems come without passports, governance beyond the state becomes necessary. Drawing on decades of experience and insight, Tom Weiss illuminates the problems and demonstrates that solutions are at hand in reformed international institutions, both governmental and nongovernmental."
-Michael Doyle, Columbia University

"In Governing the World?, Tom Weiss lucidly draws on his broad academic and practical experience with global issues to reflect on capacity gaps in governing the world today. In doing so, he weaves into his insights a rich trove of scholarly and policy accounts to give us a much-needed conceptual and analytical tool to theorize and to develop a framework for global governance."
-Charlotte Ku, University of Illinois College of Law

"Governing the World? is the best concise treatment of global governance available. Professor Weiss builds on a distinguished record of scholarship on international cooperation over many decades. He delivers a judicious, informed, and approachable treatment of the most significant issues surrounding collective action in international and global society. His analysis is also refreshingly, but not unrealistically, optimistic."
-S. Neil MacFarlane, University of Oxford
