Power, interdependence, and nonstate actors in world politics by Helen V Milner( )
12 editions published between 2009 and 2011 in English and held by 1,318 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Since they were pioneered in the 1970s by Robert Keohane and others, the broad range of neoliberal institutionalist theories of international relations have grown in importance. In an increasingly globalized world, the realist and neorealist focus on states, military power, conflict, and anarchy has more and more given way to a recognition of the importance of nonstate actors, nonmilitary forms of power, interdependence, international institutions, and cooperation. Drawing together a group of leading international relations theorists, this book explores the frontiers of new research on the rol
Votes, vetoes, and the political economy of international trade agreements by Edward D Mansfield( )
13 editions published in 2012 in English and held by 1,136 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Preferential trading arrangements (PTAs) play an increasingly prominent role in the global political economy, two notable examples being the European Union and the North American Free Trade Agreement. These agreements foster economic integration among member states by enhancing their access to one another's markets. Yet despite the importance of PTAs to international trade and world politics, until now little attention has been focused on why governments choose to join them and how governments design them. This book offers valuable new insights into the political economy of PTA formation. Many economists have argued that the roots of these agreements lie in the promise they hold for improving the welfare of member states. Others have posited that trade agreements are a response to global political conditions. Edward Mansfield and Helen Milner argue that domestic politics provide a crucial impetus to the decision by governments to enter trade pacts. Drawing on this argument, they explain why democracies are more likely to enter PTAs than nondemocratic regimes, and why as the number of veto players--interest groups with the power to block policy change--increases in a prospective member state, the likelihood of the state entering a trade agreement is reduced. The book provides a novel view of the political foundations of trade agreements."--Publisher's website
Resisting protectionism : global industries and the politics of international trade by Helen V Milner( Book )
9 editions published between 1988 and 1999 in English and held by 609 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Internationalization and domestic politics by Robert O Keohane( Book )
20 editions published between 1996 and 2003 in English and Chinese and held by 555 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Rapid increases in international economic exchanges during the past four decades have made national economies very open to the world economy by historical standards. Much recent economic analysis has been devoted to exploring the effects of such internationalization on macroeconomic policy options, national competitiveness, and rewards to various factors of production. Since economics and politics are so closely linked, there is reason to expect profound political effects as well: in particular, domestic politics in countries around the world should show signs of the impact of the world economy. The central proposition of this volume is that we can no longer understand politics within countries - what we still conventionally "domestic" politics - without comprehending the nature of the linkages between national economies and the world economy, and changes in such linkages
Interests, institutions, and information : domestic politics and international relations by Helen V Milner( Book )
9 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 474 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
Interests, Institutions, and Information examines the central factors that influence the strategic game of domestic politics. It shows that it is the outcome of this internal game - not fears of other countries' relative gains or the likelihood of cheating - that ultimately shapes how the international game is played out and therefore the extent of cooperative endeavors. The interaction of the domestic actors' preferences, given their political institutions and levels of information, defines when international cooperation is possible and what its terms will be. Several test cases examine how this argument explains the phases of a cooperative attempt: the initiation, the negotiations at the international level, and the eventual domestic ratification. The book reaches the surprising conclusion that theorists - neo-Institutionalists and Realists alike - have overestimated the likelihood of cooperation among states

Global capital, political institutions, and policy change in developed welfare states by Duane Swank( )
1 edition published in 2002 in English and held by 15 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
This book argues that the dramatic post-1970 rise in international capital mobility has not systematically contributed to the retrenchment of developed welfare states as many claim. Nor has globalization directly reduced the revenue-raising capacities of governments and undercut the political institutions that support the welfare state
