ABSTRACT
The article focuses on the criticism by David Kay of author's "Interdependence and the Reform of International Institutions." Kay points out alleged failures to incorporate "the political dimensions of multilateral diplomacy" and to understand "the complexity of the dynamics of interdependence." Regarding political dimensions, Kay focuses almost wholly on the shortcomings of the United Nations. Yet author's essay wholly ignored that organization, except to reject moving economic issues into it--a conclusion which Kay would certainly share. None of author's themes is inconsistent with his recommendations for changes in the U.S. policy toward the United Nations. Moreover, author's essay addressed a far wider range of "political dimensions" than does Kay's. It stressed the need to integrate the newly emerging powers of the Third World in international institutional arrangements, to create new modes of political leadership for those institutions, to coordinate effectively across issue-areas, and to better mobilize the existing network.
