Globalization Comes Home: How Globalization is Changing America Three Volume Set with Michelle Bartho and Ed Fogarty (Praeger Publishers, 2008)

Power and German Foreign Policy: Embedded Hegemony in Europe, Palgrave Macmillan 2007
"From the first page, Crawford's seductively written book grabs readers like a powerful novel. Suggesting that Germany's foreign policy has been characterized by the embedding of power in international institutions, it is a must-read for everyone interested in Germany's latest transformation and in innovative international relations theory." Emanuel Adler, Andrea and Charles Bronfman Chair in Israeli Studies, University of Toronto, Canada

"What shapes German foreign policy? Beverly Crawford asks important questions and gives cogent answers. Rather than merely describing policy outcomes, provides a powerful explanation." Kenneth N. Waltz, Institute of War and Peace Studies, Columbia University

"Beverly Crawford's book offers a powerful and provocative argument that challenges much of the received wisdom about the foundations of and prospects for Germany's role in Europe and beyond. Even those readers who won't fully accept the argument will be impressed by its subtety and the evidence presented." Gunther Hellman, Professor of Political Science, Johan Wolfgang Goethe University, Frankfurt am Main, Germany

The Convergence of Civilizations? Constructing a Mediterranean Region co-editor with Emanuel Adler, Federica Bicci, and Raffaella Del Sarto. University of Toronto Press, 2006

"The Convergence of Civilizations is a fascinating exploration of how regions are constructed in world politics. It uses the case of the Euro-Mediterranean partnership to inquire into the conditions under which a group of countries and peoples come to feel themselves somehow connected to each other. The authors are pioneers in the constructivist research program, and this book constitutes an important empirical contribution to a new and exciting way of thinking about international relations." -Jeffrey Kopstein, Director, Centre for European, Russian, and Eurasian Studies, University of Toronto"

"This brilliantly edited volume brings together an impressive list of scholars who take the reader through a journey from Brussels to the heart of the Southern Mediterranean. ...this volume provides an enlightening analysis of the region-building process of the Mediterranean area and a visionary sense of what will become of the Barcelona Process. Both policy-makers and scholars will find in this volume a radical new contribution to the study of regional security and peace and the Euro-Mediterranean Partnership. In many ways, The Convergence of Civilizations is the right book at the right time. --Sharon Pardo, Journal of Common Market Studies

The Convergence of Civilizations is a much welcomed, head-on attempt at challenging the overly abused ‘clash of civilisations’ doctrine. ...Adler and Crawford present the theoretical framework that underpins this endeavour. From a theoretical perspective, they suggest thinking about region building as a practice of regional governance. This conceptual contribution is a refreshing addition to a field which is undertheorised and helps advance the dialogue between IR and Mediterranean Studies towards new theoretical grounds." --Michelle Pace, Millennium

The Post-war Transformation of Germany: Democracy, Prosperity, and Nationhood, co-editor with John Brady and Sarah Wilson, University of Michigan Press, 1999.

The Myth of “Ethnic Conflict: Politics, Economics and Cultural Violence, co-editor with Ronnie D. Lipschutz, Berkeley: International and Area Studies, 1998.

"the volume is built around two seminal essays [of which Crawford’s] ‘The Causes of Cultural Conflict: An Institutional Approach’ is one.” -- David Carment, American Political Science Review

Liberalization and Leninist Legacies: Democratic Transitions in comparative Perspective, co-editor with Arend Lijphart (Berkeley: International and Area Studies, 1997)

Markets, States, and Democracy: The Political Economy of Post-Communist Transformation (Boulder Co: Westview Press, 1995)

“The editor, Beverly Crawford, in the first and best contribution to the book, sets out the conditions under which new democracies can liberalize their economies. . . the editor’s introduction represents an elegant, operational framework that deserves to be read closely and used in research on the costs of liberalization and democratization.” --Slavic Review

Economic Vulnerability in International Relations, (New York: Columbia University Press, 1993)
"Crawford's book represents a major step forward in our understanding of the interplay between economic and security concerns. No one has done a better job of extrapolating the lessons of the Cold War era to the Post-Cold War world." Barry Eichengreen, George C. Pardee and Helen N. Pardee
Professor of Economics and Political Science, University of California Berkeley
"An insightful discussion of economic vulnerabilities in trade issues likely to emerge in the post-Cold War world." Michael Mastanduno, Dartmouth College

European Dilemmas after Maastricht, co-editor with Peter W. Schulze (Berkeley: International and Area Studies, 1993)

The Future of European Security, editor, (Berkeley: U.C. Berkeley International and Area Studies, 1992).

Progress in Post-War International Relations. co-editor with Emanuel Adler (New York: Columbia University Press, 1991).

"It is an original and important work,". . ."everything there is tricky and controversial, but the authors do a fine and thorough job, and they show that the concept can be applied even in a field that often seems to leave little room for great hopes."  --Joseph S. Nye and Stanley Hoffmann

"pioneering. . . a bold action worthy of notice." --Robert Keohane

A New Europe Asserts Itself: Europe's Changing Role in International Relations, co-editor with Peter W. Schulze (Berkeley: Institute of International Studies, 1990).
