International Agencies: The Emerging Framework of Interdependence

By Evan Luard

Macmillan (for the Royal Institute of International Affairs), 1977, 338 pp.

Modern technology, communications, and economic interdependence have given an increasing number of problems a global dimension. Analyzing two aspects of 15 major problems, from postal services to seabeds to health and development, Luard describes the international institutions that have been created to manage them and poses questions concerning the prospects of international governance.
