Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Ahmed and Potter offer a good balance of theory and illustrative case examples. They successfully condense a great deal of complex infomation into simple concepts. In so doing, they demonstrate how challenging it is for even the most fluent scholars to construct clear definitions around NGOs, and consequently the difficulty in defining and analyzing their roles and behaviors in international political fora... a consise, undergraduate level textbook on NGOs appropriate for students of international studies and political science - Voluntas, 18: 91

A thoughtful, in-depth survey of the explosive popularity of nongovernmental organizations.. Designed especially for classroom study, yet also suitable for self-education.

- Midwest Book Review

Non-governmental organizations have gained a great deal of popularity in recent years. The awarding of the Nobel Prize to The International Campaign to Ban Landmines in 1997 and to Medicins Sans Frontieres in 1999 has highlighted the emergence of these organizations as new forces in international politics. Yet, there is no work to date that has provided an overview of the varieties of interaction between NGOs and states, international organizations and in international politics. This is especially true of books aimed at undergraduates.

NGOs in International Politics surveys a range of NGO activities and relationships in a manner accessible to students in the classroom. Despite the gap in the textbook literature, non-governmental organizations are being taught in undergraduate courses, either in theoretical terms or as components of service learning. This book is designed to remedy the gap between interest in NGOs and accessibleliterature for use in the classroom.

Book News Annotation:

Noting that most of the work on the role of non-governmental organizations (NGOs) in international politics is only to be found in the specialist literature, Ahmed (political science and criminal justice, Northern Kentucky U., US) and Potter (political science, Nanzan U., Japan) intend this work to serve as an introductory textbook on the topic for undergraduate audiences. They place NGOs in the context of the major international relations theories and describe their historical development. They further review the range of activities engaged in by NGOS in the current global environment and describe their interactions with intergovernmental organizations, particularly the United Nations and the World Bank.
