UPDATE: A newer version of the paper is available here: https://worldpolity.wordpress.com/2010/08/16/world-society-review-new-version/
Ann Hironaka, David Frank, Wes Longhofer, and I put together a very brief review of the world society perspective. An initial draft is available here:
Comments are welcome.
It was an interesting challenge to keep the description brief, and hopefully not too jargony. The biggest frustration was that we didn’t have space to cite all the great work out there. We pretty much just had to refer to other, more comprehensive, reviews.
One fun part: We wrote a section on “Myths and Misconceptions” about world society theory. We address some of the “stock” criticisms that come up all the time…
Thanks to Liz Boyle, Colin Beck, and everyone at ICSW for feedback on an even earlier draft.
