"A highly original and provocative analysis which ranges from abstract theory to grounded family relations. More than a primer, this excellent text will stimulate extensive thought and debate on global governance."
Robert O’Brien, McMaster University
"In this important and innovative book Tim Sinclair provides a searching critique of the concept of global governance, arguing that its greatest value is in directing our attention to the increasing number of political problems which can no longer be solved by national governments."
Andrew Gamble, University of Cambridge
