Product Description

Review

"An essential addition to the literature, which dispels the myth of unrecognised states as dark spots on the world map."
Political Studies Review

"The real strength of this book is that Caspersen takes unrecognised states on their own merits as subjects in their own right."
From the Heart of Europe

"An extremely interesting study and an invaluable addition to the literature on unrecognised states."
LSE Review of Books

"A theoretically well–grounded, empirically extremely rich, and highly policy relevant analysis of the dynamics of unrecognised states in the international system. This book sets the standard in a debate that will remain on the international security agenda for years to come."
Stefan Wolff, University of Birmingham

"With empirical detail and theoretical verve, Nina Caspersen explores a perplexing feature of contemporary global politics: the persistence of countries that have achieved de facto sovereignty but lack international recognition. Caspersen provides a rich tour of this neglected aspect of international affairs and shows convincingly why not–quite–countries ought to be of even greater concern to scholars and policy practitioners."
Charles King, Georgetown University

"A fascinating study of an important topic which has not received the attention it deserves. Drawing on significant fieldwork, this book is original, ambitious, and a model of clarity. Caspersen′s focus is contemporary and her scope is global. A contribution to both comparative politics and international relations."
Sumantra Bose, London School of Economics

"A welcome contribution to the literature on sovereignty and statehood. Theoretically informed, historically rich and sensitive to variations among cases, this clear and lively book is particularly strong on the interconnections between internal and external dynamics in the development of statehood without recognition."
Scott Pegg, Indiana University–Purdue University Indianapolis

The analysis is a good introduction to the research of unrecognized states 12 Dec. 2014
By Moran Stern - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
Caspersen provides a thorough qualitative analysis of how unrecognized polities survive in states-based world. The analysis is a good introduction to the research of unrecognized states. It is not, however, a substantive qualitative study. In sum, the text is a solid starting point for novice scholars of international politics.
