"They say Cape Buffalo ward off predators by instinctive mobbing behaviour. Many buffalo will join to protect the herd. Among nations, this is called “multilateralism”. It sounds co-operative and altruistic, but in practice can be narrow and cynical. Seeking Order In Anarchy examines the phenomenon with first-rate essays by political scientists. The book is timely, in an age of rising nationalism and a receding tide of free trade." [Full article at https://www.blacklocks.ca/review-the-herd/]

"For those engaged in re-engineering Canada’s foreign policy, Seeking Order in Anarchy: Multilateralism as State Strategy, a splendid volume edited by Robert W. Murray, offers helpful perspective… The authors highlight a distinctive Canadian scholarship of international relations— literate, analytically acute…. And the great Canadian scholar Tom Keating contributes a fine set of conclusions seeking to reconcile and illuminate the idea and often imperfect practice of multilateralism.”
