9780745648729: The Cosmopolitanism Reader

The world is becoming deeply interconnected, whereby actions in one part of the world can have profound repercussions elsewhere. In a world of overlapping communities of fate, there has been a renewed enthusiasm for thinking about what it is that human beings have in common, and to explore the ethical basis of this. This has led to a renewed interest in examining the normative principles that might underpin efforts to resolve global collective action problems and to ameliorate serious global risks. This project can be referred to as the project of cosmopolitanism.

In response to this renewed cosmopolitan enthusiasm, this volume has brought together 25 seminal essays in the development of cosmopolitan thought by some of the world's most distinguished cosmopolitan thinkers and critics. It is divided into six sections: classical cosmopolitanism, global justice, culture and cosmopolitanism, political cosmopolitanism, cosmopolitan global governance and critical examinations. This volume thus provides a thorough and extensive introduction to contemporary cosmopolitan thought and acts as a definitive source for those interested in cosmopolitan thinking and its critics.

About the Author:

Edited by David Held, London School of Economics, and Garrett Brown, University of Sheffield.

Review:

"Truly a reader's reader. Compared with other books of its type, it is unusually comprehensive, systematic and digestible."
Survival

"An excellent centrepiece for a graduate course on cosmopolitan thought and an excellent reference for graduate or undergraduate students seeking a single volume that draws together historical and contemporary cosmopolitan thought."
Central European Journal of International and Security Studies

"If you want to understand cosmopolitanism - and you should - this volume is the place to go. Brown and Held have brought together the most important contributions to understanding (and assessing) cosmopolitanism as a philosophical ideal, a political project, and a practical program. It is a great collection on an important topic."
Joshua Cohen, Stanford University

"Two distinguished scholars have assembled a remarkable collection of essays, classical and contemporary, that challenge us all to think through what it would mean for politics, culture and economy if the world were truly one and each individual was given his or her due regard as a citizen of the globe."
Michael Doyle, Columbia University
