This is a highly successful collection of contributions from leading scholars addressing some of the most pressing questions in governance research. At first glance, it may be difficult to see a unifying logic for discussing ‘international criminal justice’ and ‘comparative criminal justice’ together with ‘urban governance’. However, an excellent introduction by Crawford pulls out synergies between these diverse sectors – shifting conceptions of state sovereignty, relationships between global/local, the control of territory and space – and other authors fulfil the promised exploration of both micro- and macro-dimensions of multi-layered governance.
