Approaches to World Order

Robert Cox's writings have had a profound influence on recent developments in thinking in world politics. This book brings together for the first time his most important essays, grouped around the theme of world order. The volume is divided into sections dealing respectively with theory; with the application of Cox's approach to recent changes in world political economy; and with multilateralism and the problem of global governance. This volume will be an essential guide to Robert Cox's critical approach for students and teachers of international relations and international political economy.
