About this book

This book offers an in-depth examination of the strategic use of State sovereignty in contemporary European and international affairs and the consequences of this for authority relations in Europe and beyond. It suggests a new approach to the study of State sovereignty, proposing to understand the use of sovereignty as games where States are becoming more instrumental in their claims to sovereignty and skilled in adapting it to the challenges that they face

Reviews

Though the chapter authors have different perspectives on sovereignty, the impact of the book as a whole is to provide a distinctive inter-weaving of these perspectives such that the whole is definitely greater than the sum of the parts. This is a book that should acquire a wide readership: not just those interested in sovereignty per se or in disputes over its meaning but also those who have more practical concerns. This is a rich collection which will become a landmark study and that will repay reading by a wide audience." - John Agnew, University of California-Los Angels
