About this book

The rise of emerging or new powers has recently become one of the most researched areas in International Relations. While most studies focus on relations between traditional and emerging powers, this edited collection turns the focus 180 degrees and asks how countries outside these two power sets have reacted to the emerging new world order. Are emerging powers creating a united front in a struggle to change the global order, or are they more concerned with national interests? Are we seeing major changes in the global order, or simply an adjustment by the traditional powers to the emergence of new contenders? In order to the answer these questions, the authors take a broad thematic approach in analyzing recent trends in the interplay between states, markets and societies, concentrating in particular on Latin America, Africa, the Middle East and Europe, and on the three major emerging powers: China, India and Brazil.

Reviews

"The chapters in this book provide a very sensible analysis of the impact of the emerging powers on the structure of the world economy and the global political order. The authors take a refreshingly unusual interest in the implications of these changes for people and governments in countries that are not global powers: most of Sub-Saharan Africa, the smaller and poorer countries of Latin America, and even smaller countries in Western Europe." - Craig N. Murphy, Wellesley College, USA

"This volume provides a fascinating, multi-layered, and theoretically-informed analysis of the impact of the rising powers on the Global South and on Europe. Through providing cutting-edge critical analyses of the scope of contemporary global transformations, it will become a key reference for students and scholars in the fields of International Relations and International Political Economy." - Kevin Gray, University of Sussex, UK
