Pressestimmen"International organization textbook writers face a formidable challenge. There are so many organizations, which display huge variety in almost every aspect. One response is to produce a book which is long, descriptive, and dull. Professor Jordon and his associates, however, have chosen a much more difficult route, and traversed it with great skill and success. Their book is short, focuses analytically on a wide range of issues, yet also provides extremely interesting case studies which give the reader a sense of immediate practicality. Above all, the book had the virtue of encouraging the student to sit up and think. The authors are to be very warmly congratulated." Alan James, Emeritus Professor Department of International Relations Keele University, U.K. "This volume provides an extraordinarily useful text for a course in international organizations, as it furnishes a compact, authoritative, and highly readable analysis of how, why, and to what degree international organizations contribute to regularizing the interactions among states and other international actors.... The analysis is well balanced between theoretical considerations and real world policy output.... The key to appreciating this volume lies in its subtitle: The Management of International Cooperation. This facet distinguishes Jordan's text from the others in the field....[T]his volume emerges as an outstanding contribution to the contemporary literature on international organizations." Christopher C. Joyner Professor of International Law and Government Georgetown University "An extremely timely and well organized text on the evolving and increasingly central role of international organizations in the management of global change. This fourth edition of International Organizations: A Comparative Approach has been prepared by Robert S. Jordan and addresses all the pertinent questions. It will be of great interest to students and practitioners alike." John P. Renninger Director Asia and the Pacific Division Department of Political Affairs United Nations
