Defensive Internationalism Providing Public Goods in an Uncertain World

by Davis B. Bobrow, Mark A. Boyer

Defensive Internationalism Providing Public Goods in an Uncertain World Synopsis

Defensive Internationalism Providing Public Goods in an Uncertain World by Davis B. Bobrow, Mark A. Boyer

Defensive Internationalism Providing Public Goods in an Uncertain World Press Reviews

Bobrow and Boyer have done a great job in thoroughly analyzing the G7's thoughts and actions with nuance and dexterity. A must read. -Takashi Inoguchi, University of Tokyo Rejecting the pessimism that often characterizes serious debate on the prospects for systemic reform, Bobrow and Boyer raise our hopes for the future. . . . This exemplary, multidimensional book deserves a wide readership, both inside and outside the academy. -Louis W. Pauly, Director, Center for International Studies, University of Toronto An excellent book. Bobrow and Boyer's goal of explaining why 'privileged' states contribute to global order is a critical issue and their 'club theory' answer is inventive and enlightening. So is their approach: a blending of rational choice and constructivist perspectives, solid empirical evidence, and the integration of international politics with domestic political issues. Reading this work is essential for understanding the future contours of international politics. -Tom Volgy, Executive Director of the International Studies Association and Professor of Political Science, University of Arizona
