In questioning the relevance of past notions of state sovereignty for the more complex world of the future, these two Australian authors have hit on the head one of the more intriguing aspects of the fast-changing international landscape. Be it globalization of economies, diffusion of technology or multipolarity of security concerns, territorial boundaries are coming to matter a good deal less. Accordingly national sovereignty will have to be redefined. This book sets out more to state the problems than to suggest answers, but it is probably the best we can do in our current thinking, and is therefore a welcome contribution.
