POLITICAL SCIENCE PROFESSOR'S WORK WINS INTERNATIONAL RECOGNITION
OSWEGO -- The International Studies Association has awarded its 2002 Chadwick F. Alger Prize to "Reshaping World Politics" by Craig Warkentin, an assistant professor of political science at SUNY Oswego.
The Alger Prize "recognizes the best work . . . of the previous year on the subject of international organization," according to the International Studies Association.
"Reshaping World Politics," published last year by Rowman and Littlefield Publishers, examines ways in which non-governmental organizations contribute to the development and maintenance of global civil society. A companion Web site at http://www.oswego.edu/ reshaping/ contains discussion questions, online exercises and other supporting material.
"When I started this years ago, nobody was talking about global civil society," Warkentin said. "Now it's a hot topic."
