Cambridge Studies in International Relations The Retreat of the State: The Diffusion of Power in the World Economy

by Susan (University of Warwick) Strange

Cambridge Studies in International Relations The Retreat of the State: The Diffusion of Power in the World Economy Synopsis

Adopting new and much more comprehensive concepts of both power and politics, The Retreat of the State develops a theoretical framework to show who really governs the world economy. It goes on to explore some of the non-state authorities, from mafias to the Big Six accounting firms and international bureaucrats, whose power over who gets what in the world encroaches on that of national governments. The book is a signpost, pointing to some promising new directions for the future development of research and teaching in international political economy. Its originality and scope make The Retreat of the State of great importance for scholars and students of international relations, business and management.

Cambridge Studies in International Relations The Retreat of the State: The Diffusion of Power in the World Economy Press Reviews

'Susan Strange's latest work, The Retreat of the State, goes a long way to breaking the bounds of traditional analyses of the international political economy. Instead of concentrating on well-covered ground involving trade relations and balances between states ... the book takes a much broader look at the functions of the world economy and the diffusion of authority within it to legitimately perform those functions.' The Review of Politics The Retreat of the State is rich in detailed argument and discussion....This book deserves a very wide readership among those interested in where the modern territorial state and the modern state system are headed as we enter the twenty-first century. Stephen J. Kobrin, American Political Science Review ...an impassioned critique of those who argue that the state's control of its currency, or even home-based multinational companies, remains intact....a refreshing pause from the political and academic attacks that attend globalization and a sophisticated interweaving of the political and economic threads that are globalization.
