BEYOND SOVEREIGNTY: ISSUES FOR A GLOBAL AGENDA examines the pressing global issues that countries cannot solve alone. Author Maryann Cusimano Love helps readers put the subjects of today's headlines -- such as global poverty and debt, the environmental crisis, terrorism, disease, WMD proliferation, international crime, drug trafficking, and human trafficking -- into the larger context of globalization. Love addresses the challenges to globalization, the rise of non-state actors, the future of the state and global governance, and the difficulties of managing cross-border problems in a world of sovereign states. Throughout, the author argues that since global challenges go beyond borders, the solutions to these challenges are to be found beyond sovereignty.
