About this book

This book provides an alternative approach to regionalism in neglected parts of the world. Taking stock of several decades of conceptualization, the author provides a political sociology approach of regionalisms fed by recent contributions from the sociology of international relations and public policy analysis. It uses a methodological rather than theoretical framework to bring a new perspective on an emerging field of comparative regionalism. The relational dimensions, the social contexts and characteristics of actors and their practices are key to shed a new light on what is considered in this book as a ‘social international phenomenon’.

Reviews

“This book makes a decidedly contribution to the emerging field of comparative regionalism. It makes the case for a methodological breakthrough based on political sociology. Bringing in the actors, their relations and their beliefs, it represents a giant step in our constant quest to better account for global evolutions.” (Olivier Dabène, Professor, Paris Institute of Political Studies (Sciences Po), France)“At a time when the contours and substance of the world of regions feature as moving and elusive areas of investigation, Kevin Parthenay’s concise volume is a refreshing methodological and theoretical contribution to the comparative study of regionalisms. By focussing on the diversity of pathways and  representations within the world of regionalisms, the author manages to reconcile the legacy of the post-cold war world of the 1990s with such recent developments as the Brexit, the post- Trans-Pacific Partnership world or China’s Belt and Road initiative.” (Daniel C. Bach, Professor, University of Bordeaux, France)
