Despite the frequency with which the term 'community' is used, it is hard to find any comprehensive exploration of the nature and value of community. This book tries to remedy this omission whilst taking seriously the idea that community can be of different kinds and can exist at different levels, and that these levels and kinds may come into conflict with one another. It focuses on the question of what kind of community is valuable at the level of the state. It then explores the limits that ideals of political community place upon cultural diversity within the state, and the limits that, in turn, ideals of global community place upon the self-determination of political communities. This book will be of interest to students of political theory, philosophy and international relations.

MEDIA REVIEWS
'Andrew Mason has written an illuminating and wonderfully stimulating book about important and difficult issues. Students of political thoery, philosophy, and international relations should read it not merely with interest, but with profit.' Richard Dagger, Arizona State University
"Mason's focus on political community distinguishes his book on community theory from other recent works...Mason's style of writing is logical and linear...While his style is dense and scholarly, the reader is amply rewared by conclusions which are simply stated and reitertated throughout ensuing chapters...Throughout his book, Mason's focus on the practical political compromises and conditions neccessary for inclusive communities to flourish is welcome...his focus on the political realities lurjing beneath community conflict at a variety of levels provides a needed contextual frame to our efforts at achieving intercultural understanding." Pergamon Vol. 25, July 01
