This is unquestionably one of the most important books in the field of the past decade. --International Affairs The liberal argument that democratic regimes can make a dramatic difference in world affairs has finally achieved intellectual respectability, as this fine book so convincingly maintains. --Tony Smith, Foreign Affairs This pathbreaking work is one of the most important studies on international order to appear in many years. It will be required reading for all students and scholars of international relations. --Choice After Victory is a majestic work that combines many familiar but seemingly unrelated themes into one elegant package of exceptional theoretical and empirical sweep. . . . It should have an enduring impact on the study and practice of international relations. --Journal of Politics This is a thought-provoking and elegantly written book and an important contribution to our understanding of postwar orders and institutions. --Peter Liberman, Political Science Quarterly After Victory show[s] how international governance can serve the interests of hegemonic powers. --Robert Wright, The New York Times Winner of the Jervis-Shroeder Best Book Award
