Description - Commonwealth by Professor Timothy M. Shaw

The inter-state and non-state Commonwealth networks are rather unknown features of contemporary 'global governance' yet they play a key part in supporting it. Both of these global networks have unique criteria for membership which hinge on good governance and popular participation. This book is a fascinating exploration of these webs of influence and power. The Commonwealth(s) evolved out of one European empire - that of Britain - with members initially drawn from the trio of 'dominions' plus the distinctive regime of South Africa. Today's 54 member states, plus more than 70 professional associations, make it the most innovative international organisation in terms of political, corporate and civil society governance. This is a superb examination of a neglected and crucial facet of world affairs.
