About this Item

Paperback. 321 pages. Dimensions: 8.7in. x 6.0in. x 0.9in.This volume features essays on writing from the period of the Holocaust (1939-1945) as well as from its aftermath. The essays cover a wide geographic, linguistic, thematic and generic range of relevant material. Such a volume is warranted for several reasons. First, at the present juncture, the corpus of Holocaust literature has grown to immense proportions (indeed, it was formidable even during the war period). Students and teachers seek guidance in determining a canon of essential readings, a context to interpret them, and a paradigm for the evolution of writing on the Holocaust. Second, many readers lack the skills to negotiate the writings in the original languages, and need help in understanding how language (especially but not only Yiddish and Hebrew) is important to the literary response. This item ships from multiple locations. Your book may arrive from Roseburg,OR, La Vergne,TN. Bookseller Inventory # 9780521744379

About this title

Synopsis:

Cosmopolitan theory suggests that we should shift our moral attention from the local to the global. Richard Vernon argues, however, that if we adopt cosmopolitan beliefs about justice we must re-examine our beliefs about political obligation. Far from undermining the demands of citizenship, cosmopolitanism implies more demanding political obligations than theories of the state have traditionally recognized. Using examples including humanitarian intervention, international criminal law, and international political economy, Vernon suggests we have a responsibility not to enhance risks facing other societies and to assist them when their own risk-taking has failed. The central arguments in Cosmopolitan Regard are that what we owe to other societies rests on the same basis as what we owe to our own, and that a theory of cosmopolitanism must connect the responsibilities of citizens beyond their own borders with their obligations to one another.

Book Description:

Cosmopolitan theory suggests that we have duties beyond the borders of our own states and therefore what we owe to our co-citizens we also owe to fellow humans globally. Cosmopolitan Regard discusses what this means for humanitarian intervention, international criminal law and international political economy.
