`At a time of much debate over the keys to effective global governance, Simon Reich makes an important contribution. He combines insightful theory development with focused empirical work to make his case for the crucial role of global norms. A valuable book for scholars, students and the policy community.'---Bruce W. Jentleson, Professor of Public Policy and Political Science, Duke University, USA

`Bridging the scholarly-policy divide, it is not only a valuable contribution to the burgeoning theoretical literature on norms in international relations but will also be of great interest to students of American foreign policy, policy practitioners, and the broader public.'---Peter Andreas, Professor of Political Science and International Studies, Brown University, USA

`Reich challenges traditional US assumptions about the need for US leadership in a balanced assessment of the demands facing both sides of the Atlantic in the 21st Century....He advocates a novel role for the US better suited to dealing with emergent transnational problems. A book that European scholars and policy makers should read and digest.'---Richard Higgott, Professor of Politics and International Studies and Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick, UK

How do traditional and emergent sources of power link with each other in the new millennium? When do they create broadly legitimated values? And What do these new connections imply for America's role in the world? Reich casts aside the conventional formulations that emphasize the alternative importance of material (hard) or social (soft) power, of different kinds of actors, or of theory and practice. Instead, he offers a novel and comprehensive formulation that illustrates the alternative ways in which soft and hard power are systematically connected, how NGOs and states relate in a globalizing world, how emergent transnational challenges have rendered old policy options obsolete, and considers the implications for American choices-and limits-in the 21st century. Invoking a rare breadth of empirical material covering issues from anti-corruption to humanitarian intervention, cyber-security to human trafficking, Reich provides a grand vision of the reshaping of power and the conditions under which truly global norms are created.

'At a time of much debate over the keys to effective global governance, Simon Reich makes an important contribution.

"Reich challenges traditional US assumptions about the need for US leadership in a balanced assessments of the demands facing both sides of the Atlantic in the 21st Century. In recognizing the decline of US legitimacy, the rise of Asia and the changing contours of the global system, he advocates a novel role for the US better suited to dealing with emergent transnational problems. A book that European scholars and policymakers should read and digest.

- Richard Higgott, Professor of Politics and International Studies and Pro Vice-Chancellor, University of Warwick, UK

This timely and insightful book nicely integrates "soft" and "hard" power considerations in evaluating the creation and promotion of global norms in many of the most important issue-areas of the 21st century. Bridging the scholarly-policy divide, it is not only a valuable contribution to the burgeoning theoretical literature on norms in international relations but will also be of great interest to students of American foreign policy, policy practitioners, and the broader public.

- Peter Andreas, Professor of Political Science and International Studies, Brown University, USA
