The last decade has seen the emergence of a set of ideas under the broad banner of neo-liberalism that connect international law and international relations. One of the key concepts in this burgeoning intellectual movement, revived from the 1970s, is the idea of transnational governance, which posits that modern liberal states collectively organize their political life in ways that go beyond simple hierarchical relations between solitary sovereigns and individuals and instead rely on complex international networks linking various branches of government and key non-state actors. Transatlantic Governance in the Global Economy, edited by Mark Pollack and Gregory Shaffer, is an attempt to add empirical weight to this liberal theory. The book consists of a set of case studies, written by political scientists, law professors, and legal practitioners, on the state of the New Transatlantic Agenda, as agreed upon by the United States and the European Union in 1995.
