"For two decades John Ruggie has arguably been the most original and insightful theorist of his generation in the United States. This book puts conveniently between two covers a collection of his most important papers. Preceded by a new introduction that articulates with admirable clarity and succinctness Ruggie's analytical perspective, "Constructing the World Polity offers a distinct and brilliantly original view of international relations."
-Peter J. Katzenstein, Cornell University
"John Ruggie's brilliant articles on the theory and practice of world politics, published over the last twenty-five years, are accompanied by a graceful and reflective intellectual autobiography, which reveals much about Ruggie's thought and about the experience of true scholarship. "Constructing the World Polity is essential reading for all serious students of world politics."
-Robert O. Keohane, Duke University
