Yet their place vis-a-vis international organizations, states, and firms is sill not well understood. Based on a wealth of original information and research, this book offers both a critical in-depth introduction to the new actors and a discussion of recent theoretical approaches that have either dismissed or wildly exaggerated their moral and political significance. Combining insights from the English School of International Relations and recent Frankfurt School works on the relevance of struggles for recognition, Heins furthers our understanding of international NGOs in radically new and unexpected ways."--Jacket." ;
