This monograph is based on a well-developed methodology. It is of undoubted interest for a wide range of experts seeking a deeper understanding of the causes and essence of the ongoing shifts in the world system and the possible emergence of a post-Westphalian world order. The book develops a sophisticated theory to provoke discussions not only within theories of regionalism, but also in the theory of international relations.— Europe-Asia Studies
Regionalism, encompassing inter-regionalism and trans-regionalism, are powerful transformative movements in our times. This innovative volume brings together a cross-generational team of experts from Europe, Eurasia and Asia to examine the dynamics of new forms of ‘wholeness’ to counter traditional forms of power politics across the three regions. Transregionalism offers the prospect of a transformation of international relations. This is theoretical and empirical work of the highest order, and is essential reading to understand the shift towards regionalism in world politics today and the possible emergence of a post-Westphalian world order.— Richard Sakwa, Professor of Russian and European Politics, University of Kent
A timely discussion of the ongoing shifts in the global system. The book is offering a truly comparative perspective, allowing for a better understanding of differences in methodological approaches of the Western, Eastern European, Russian, and East Asian scholars to regional studies. A must read for anybody interested in a deeper understanding of the root causes and consequences of the current interregional shifts. — Andrei V. Korobkov, Middle Tennessee State University
