Political scientists, economists, historians, and sociologists here look at aspects of world politics in which states are not utterly dominant—that is, at transnational relations. The editors argue that the “state-centric” view of world politics is inadequate. The essays cover several types of transnational actors: multinational enterprise, the Ford Foundation, racial minorities; different fields in which transnational processes occur; and the effects of these relations on peace, American foreign policy, and international organizations. The book grows out of the 1971 special issue of the journal International Organization.
