‘In Mapping the New World Order, Thomas J. Volgy and his colleagues answer one of the central questions of contemporary politics: Has the constellation of intergovernmental organizations (IGOs) changed since the end of the Cold War – and if so, how? To answer this question, the authors draw upon new data and new methods to map the births, deaths, regional concentrations, memberships and effects of formal IGOs from the Cold War to the 2000s, revealing subtle changes but also remarkable continuity in the basic institutional architecture of the post-Cold War world. Essential reading for any student of global governance.’
