Abstract:

"In this politically incorrect essay, Samy Cohen attacks an established sacred cow: the theory of state decline." "According to the conventional wisdom, states are on the wane under the impact of globalization, and frontiers are being gradually abolished; the outcome could be at worst and anarchic world, at best an international civil society whose powers exceed those of established political authority." "But Cohen demonstrates that the world is not like this at all - that what the ironically calls the "transnational-state-decline" theory is a fashionable fable at university seminars, but does not correspond with reality. A good illustration of this, he argues, are NGOs, few of which are in fact independent of states, and even fewer capable of free expression." "The state, Cohen contends, is fighting back, for good or for ill. It retains its freedom for maneuver - and it is successfully resisting pressure to make it more virtuous, more transparent, and more willing to share responsibility."--Jacket.
