"One of the most important issues the world must deal with today is
how sovereign countries can join together to make globalization
work for everyone--not just the privileged. I believe that one way
we can start to achieve this is by strengthening the Finance
Ministers' G-20, and perhaps advancing a similar concept to the
Leaders' level. In October 2003, I met with Anne-Marie Slaughter at
a meeting organized by The Centre for International Governance
Innovation in Waterloo, Ontario, where we discussed this concept in
great detail. At the roundtable, Ms. Slaughter presented a number
of original and innovative ways to bolster the G-20. I was
impressed--her ideas were a fresh approach on how the world should
govern itself. I believe that it will be her type of intellectual
rigour and ingenuity that will bring to fruition new ways to manage
our interdependence. Ms. Slaughter's work in global governance is
highly regarded amongst international development thinkers and
doers. This book, reflecting years of research and experience, is
both interesting and timely. As you read, think deeply about the
proposed ideas, and how we can use multilateralism to solve issues
that single nations cannot solve alone. Greater human understanding
is crucial in order to solve complex international problems. Ms.
Slaughter has proven to have a clear grasp on how to improve the
situation. I urge you to read on."--Paul Martin, Prime Minister of
"A brilliant analysis of global networks emerging as if guided
by an invisible hand. A 'must read' for anyone puzzling over issues
of governance on a world scale, Anne-Marie Slaughter's book
illustrates important trends that, whether you like them or not,
willmake you think hard and long."--George P. Shultz, former
Secretary of State
"Anne-Marie Slaughter is a visionary, and "A New World Order" is
her manifesto. Even those who have long studied international
relations will see the world differently after reading this
book."--Robert O. Keohane, James B. Duke Professor of Political
Science, Duke University, author of "After Hegemony: Cooperation
and Discord in the World Political Economy"
"Just when we thought America's postwar multilateralism had run
out of steam, along comes this splendid book to offer a cornucopia
of prescient forward-thinking about the new ties that bind us to
the world."--Thomas M. Franck, New York University School of
"Global interdependence requires governance, but we properly
fear global government. Anne-Marie Slaughter suggests an innovative
solution to the dilemma. Her intelligent and highly readable book
describes how global governance can occur through government
networks that harness national government officials to address
international problems. This book is a major contribution to an
important debate."--Joseph S. Nye, Jr., author of "The Paradox of
American Power: Why the World's Only Superpower Can't Go It
"In today's world one sees global networks everywhere, from
capital markets to illegal drugs to terrorism. Now government is
also going global, writes Anne-Marie Slaughter in this important
and original work. Slaughter persuasively documents the rise of an
organic international order based not on grand theories of world
government but rather day-to-day contacts and communications among
governments. She presents a vision of global governance that is
practical and yet could have profoundnormative implications. Going
well beyond the traditional confines of international law and
international relations, this book will be discussed in both fields
for years to come."--Fareed Zakaria, Editor, "Newsweek
"In this very ambitious, unique, and clearly written book,
Anne-Marie Slaughter not only turns her focus to relatively
uncharted territory but she does so with a very systematic and
thoughtful analysis of not just what is going on, but why it is
going on, and where it is likely to go in the future. No other book
does this."--Sean D. Murphy, author of "Humanitarian Intervention:
The United Nations in an Evolving World Order"
"This long-anticipated book represents the accumulation of more
than a decade of insights by Anne-Marie Slaughter on the
disaggregation of the state and the decentralization of diplomacy,
the growing links across national boundaries of functionally
specialized state officials, and new crossnational networks to
fulfill the tasks of global governance."--Lori F. Damrosch,
Columbia University, author of "International Law Cases and
