Head, Mann, & Kozlina: Transnational Governance: Emerging Models of Global Legal Regulation

Michael Head (Univ. of Western Sydney - Law), Scott Mann (Univ. of Western Sydney - Law), & Simon Kozlina (Univ. of Western Sydney - Law) have published Transnational Governance: Emerging Models of Global Legal Regulation (Ashgate 2012). The table of contents is here. Here's the abstract:

As globalization continues to spread and evolve, so nation-states attempt to govern financialization, tax evasion, corruption, terrorism, civil and military conflicts and environmental dangers, social polarization and the complexities in human rights implementation, by institutional and transnational means. This volume discusses these issues from different legal perspectives and highlights the challenges of governing human activity in an age of remarkable interconnectedness.

Covering a broad range of policy areas and analysis of emerging forms of governance from liberal to critical and Marxist, the chapters are legal in their approach and form an important contribution to the growing study of emergent forms of authority, coordination and power developing in response to the challenges presented by some of the key contemporary governance issues in the first half of the twenty-first century.
