درباره این کتاب:
It takes a village to write a book. In this case, it took a global village. While working on versions of this book in Ithaca, Istanbul, and Singapore, I have accrued more debts than I can hope to settle. At the National University of Singapore, I thank my colleagues in the Political Science Department and the Faculty of Law for creating the institutional space in which I could bring this project to its conclusion. The outlines of this work I first developed in my dissertation at Cornell University. My committee members’ supervision laid the foundations for my work’s intellectual orientation. The encouragement, scholarly expectations, and intellectual vivacity of Susan Buck- Morss, Matthew Evangelista, Jason Frank, and Richard Bensel decisively shaped my path to becoming a young scholar. Jens David Ohlin, Sidney Tarrow, Matthew Evangelista, and Muna Ndulo supervised my course of study in international law at the Cornell Law School.
