Summary
The USA has been considered dominant in creation and shaping of global initiatives. This book examines cases where, in spite of American opposition, the international community has moved forward with agreements. The editors consider how such agreements are reached and what these agreements tell us about international politics today. Each chapter addresses systematically utility and predictive power of major theories of international relations - realism, liberalism and constructivism - to analyze which theories of international cooperation and leadership best predicted these processes and outcomes. Detailed case studies include: Kyoto Protocol on Climate Change ; International Criminal Court ; Cartagena Protocol on Biosafety ; Child Soldier Ban ; Small Arms Programme ; Landmine Ban. Combination of detailed analysis and case studies make this a significant contribution to scholarship in international relations and it should be of interest to students and scholars of international relations theory, international politics and international law--Publisher's description
