Internationale Organisationen mit globaler oder regionaler Reichweite (z.B. UN, IWF, Weltbank, WTO, EU) spielen eine zunehmend wichtige Rolle bei der Schaffung und Implementierung von internationalen Normen und Regeln, mithin bei Global Governance. Die Sicherheit, das ökonomische Wohlergehen, der Schutz der Menschenrechte und die ökologischen Lebensbedingungen von Menschen weltweit werden von der Fähigkeit bzw. Unfähigkeit internationaler Organisationen, Kooperation und Regieren jenseits des Nationalstaates möglich zu machen und zu stabilisieren, beeinflusst. Das Lehrbuch will die Leserin bzw. den Leser daher theoretisch informiert und empirisch fundiert mit den Entstehungsbedingungen, der Entwicklung, Funktionsweise und den Tätigkeiten internationaler Organisationen vertraut machen. Es führt in die wichtigsten Theorien über internationale Organisationen ein und bietet einen historischen Überblick über internationale Organisationen in verschiedenen Politikfeldern. Das Lehrbuch analysiert ferner die Akteure, Strukturen und Prozesse, die die Entscheidungsfindung in internationalen Organisationen prägen. Schließlich werden die Tätigkeiten eines breiten Spektrums internationaler Organisationen und deren Beitrag zur kooperativen Bearbeitung grenzüberschreitender Probleme in den Sachbereichen „Sicherheit“, „Wirtschaft“, „Umwelt“ und „Menschenrechte“ untersucht.

Als griechischer Finanzminister löste Varoufakis eine der spektakulärsten und kontroversesten Auseinandersetzungen der jüngsten politischen Geschichte aus, als er versuchte, die Beziehung seines Landes mit der EU neu zu verhandeln. Trotz der massenhaften Unterstützung seitens der griechischen Bevölkerung und der bestechend einfachen Logik seiner Argumente – dass die gigantischen Kredite und die damit verbundene Sparpolitik, die seinem bankrotten Land aufgezwungen wurden, eine zerstörerische Wirkung haben – hatte Varoufakis nur in einem Erfolg: Europas politisches und mediales Establishment in Rage zu versetzen. Aber die wahre Geschichte der damaligen Geschehnisse ist beinahe unbekannt, weil so vieles in der EU hinter verschlossenen Türen stattfindet. In diesem couragierten Bericht deckt Varoufakis alles auf und erzählt die ganze Geschichte von waghalsiger Politik, von Heuchelei, Betrug und Verrat, die das Establishment in den Grundfesten erschüttern wird. Dieses Buch ist ein Weckruf, die europäische Demokratie zu erneuern, bevor es zu spät ist.

The world’s greatest importer and exporter, the European Union is an economic superpower with a GDP even larger than th US. It is America’s most important trading partner and a key ally on the world stage, but how much do we really know about the nature and aim of European integration? And, in an increasingly multipolar world, will it ever challenge America’s global dominance? Featuring the most up-to-date assessment of the EU, its inner workings, external relations, and likely future development, this is the perfect introduction for anyone seeking to better understand European integration and what it means for the rest of the world, including the US. Alasdair Blair is Jean Monnet Chair, Professor of International Relations at De Montfort University, UK. He is the author of The European Union since 1945.

The Seventh Edition of COMPARATIVE POLITICS IN TRANSITION combines a thematic framework with a country-by-country approach to provide a thoughtful and effective introduction to Comparative Politics that is appropriate for students new to the study of political science. The author uses an arenas classification to organize and frame the systematic comparative analysis, rather than the traditional three worlds framework. This classification more accurately reflects the contemporary political, economic, and social realities of different political systems, allowing the author to provide historical, theoretical, and conceptual background through ten in-text country case studies. Unlike most other comparative politics texts, McCormick provides a balanced study of the Western and non-Western world and explores the politics and government of Islam and of failed states.

Written by one of the premier scholars on the European Union and hailed as the best undergraduate text on the subject, this book has been thoroughly updated, revised, and streamlined. Clear and comprehensive, it is dedicated to demystifying one of the world's most important and least-understood institutions. Ginsberg begins with the foundation blocks of history, law, economics, and politics to provide the context for understanding integration. He then breaks the EU down into its individual elements so that they easily can be understood on their own, as well as in relation to one another and to the whole. Ensuring that students' knowledge of the EU rests on a solid foundation, the author challenges them to see it as a remarkable experiment in regional cooperation with profound implications for the peaceful resolution of conflict in many of the world's troubled regions.
