Accountability and Abuses of Power in World Politics
Ruth W. Grant and Robert O. Keohane
The authors are grateful to Karen Alter, Craig Borowiak, William Curtis, Peter Feaver, Stephen Grant, Nan Keohane, Lenore Jones-Perretto, Joseph S. Nye, Jr., Joseph Weiler, and Ngaire Woods for criticisms of an earlier version of this paper and conversations about the concept of accountability. We also appreciate critiques by three anonymous referees and the Editor of the Review. Comments by colleagues at Duke University in a seminar that we held on September 24, 2003, and by participants at a seminar at New York University Law School on March 1, 2004, were particularly helpful.
