"Almost three decades of research and writing by one of the world’s most preeminent scholars of international relations has been collected in this handy volume. From peace and conflict studies to transnational norms, no scholar has contributed more to a wider range and deeper thinking on world politics, human rights, and governance than Thomas Risse. Read this collection and you will have a thorough knowledge of a brilliant scholar’s train of thought and an insight into his massive impact on the field of international relations." - Beth Simmons, University of Pennsylvania, USA.
"This collection of essays provides a roadmap for an intellectual journey with Thomas Risse -- one of most influential International Relations Scholars of the last decades. The collection displays the inner logic of Risse’s contributions and how they belong together. At the same time, it teaches us a lot about the development of the field." - Michael Zürn, WZB Berlin Social Science Center, Germany.
"In our globalized world and fragmented discipline, this book is a wonderful reminder of the benefits from thinking across sub-field lines and a bit ‘outside the box.’ In this collection of his major works – accompanied by an excellent synthesizing/where-next introduction - Thomas Risse demonstrates the theoretical and real-world benefits of systematically thinking about and connecting the domestic and international. Including work that spans nearly 25 years, the book also provides a fascinating look at the evolving thinking of one of the major theorists of our time. A must read – for both comparativists and IR scholars!" - Jeffrey T. Checkel, Simon Fraser University, Canada.
