In Cosmopolitan Love and Individuality, Nigel Rapport outlines his quest for an ethic of social recognition and inclusion based on shared humanity rather than membership of fictional social, and cultural groupings such as nationalities, religions, and ethnicities. The book proposes love as the glue for social inclusion, where love is the emotional recognition of other individual human beings.

MEDIA REVIEWS
This is a thoughtful and deeply passionate book about the civic virtues of mutual recognition. Through a series of nuanced reflections on cosmopolitanism, individuality and society, Rapport proposes to consider love as the principle virtue necessary for establishing a compassionate space for otherness. As such, Cosmopolitan Love and Individuality is classic Rapport but with a twist. With a novel-like prose, the book eloquently captures the conceptual, political and existential components of a cosmopolitanism that is anchored in the distinctive specificity of the Other. Rapport takes this discussion onto a new level, however, by boldly proposing that an integrative society of equals can only be formed through the emotional and compassionate engagement of love. -- Morten Nielsen, Denmark's National Museum
Cosmopolitan Love and Individuality is the intellectual successor to Rapport's 2012 Anyone, The Cosmopolitan Subject of Anthropology. In it, he rehearses what might be the motivation for taking up his formerly described politesse as general practice and for recognizing its virtue: the loving look. This book has all the hallmarks of Rapport's intrepid thinking, chief of which is his dissatisfaction, even anxiety, over the entrapment we anthropologists tend to make of ourselves in classificatory thinking. Having long been one of our bravest thinkers, this book is a quest to loose ourselves from the classifications we all too often take to be realities of `culture,' challenging us to look beyond our borders, and inviting us to visit with the promise of the loving. -- Simone Dennis, Australian National University
