BeschreibungThese contributions by international scholars reconsider the conceptualization of power in world politics. Arguing that the importance of power in international relations is underestimated, the book presents and employs a taxonomy of power that embraces agency, institutions, structure and discourse. It demonstrates how these different forms connect and intersect and how such an expanded concept can enrich our understanding of global governance.
