“This edited volume is an exciting, challenging read. It would suit advanced scholars in a range of different disciplines as well as serve as an excellent text for an advanced group of post-graduate students studying sociology, law, economics and globalisation.
Written by a range of scholars, including many leaders in a number of areas such as economic sociology, transnational private regulation, transnational corporate governance, constitutional and international law, the book is a veritable goldmine of ideas and thinking across a multidisciplinary landscape that is as innovative as it is interesting.
The wealth of knowledge these scholars contribute has been drawn together and masterfully edited by the team of Christian Joerges and Josef Falke and put into a very readable, consistent, and intellectually challenging work. The chapters, each individually authored, have been very carefully worked through for clarity of expression and consistency of thought and language, and all range between 20-25 pages allowing for a thorough exposition of the particular topic at hand
...the only challenges in this book come from what the challenge of a good work is: the challenge of engaging in new thinking and with innovative ideas.
There is little to critique in such a dense, interesting, and well-thought out work. As noted, the leisure to work through it with a group of advanced students would be a pleasure. Its chapters are exceptionally well thought out, structured and written, and would readily serve as model papers for students.” – Dr Benedict Sheehy,

“The papers in the volume have a broad scientific and interdisciplinary scope which makes their reading both fascinating and complex...a highly sophisticated and important collection of essays to challenging problems in legal and political science under the impact of globalisation. The wide scope of the contributions from a theoretical and problem-oriented perspective makes reading and understanding not easy, but certainly worthwhile and challenging.” – Norbert Reich,
