Read in January, 2002

A nice step beyond hegemonic stability theory and Waltz's neorealism. Institutions can remain even after the hegemon that created them goes into decline, thus supporting the economic system designed by the hegemon. Perhaps a little dated now, especially with the idea that international institutions themselves can be actors, rather than just forums that help reduce transaction costs.
