Disclaimer. Don't rely on these old notes in lieu of reading the literature, but they can jog your memory. As a grad student long ago, my peers and I collaborated to write and exchange summaries of political science research. I posted them to a wiki-style website. "Wikisum" is now dead but archived here. I cannot vouch for these notes' accuracy, nor can I even say who wrote them. If you have more recent summaries to add to this collection, send them my way I guess. Sorry for the ads; they cover the costs of keeping this online.
Martin. 2000. Democratic commitments: Legislatures and international cooperation. Princeton: Princeton University Press.
Compare Milner (1997).
Milner sees cooperation as a continuation of domestic (distributional) politics by other means (an equity concern). Martin is more concerned with cooperation as a solution to coordination problems (an efficiency concern).
International institutions solve coordination problems.
