The dream of a cosmopolitical utopia has been around for thousands of years. Yet the promise of being locally situated while globally connected and mobile has never seemed more possible than today. Through a classical sociological approach, this book analyses the political, technological and cultural systems underlying cosmopolitanism.

MEDIA REVIEWS

'an excellet guide-map for researching political, cultural and ethical conditions surrounding cosmopolitanism in our era' - International Sociology

'The authors offer a clear introduction to recent debates about cosmopolitanism, providing original ideas which show that cosmopolitanism needs sociology. Cosmopolitanism is a matter of ethical stance and political order, but it cannot be understood without attention to embodied affect, patterns of social relations, culturally informed social action. Cosmopolitanism is not just a set of utopian ideals, but a phenomenon in the contemporary world which needs analysis.'

- Craig Calhoun, President, Social Science Research Council and Professor of the Social Sciences, New York University, USA

'This book provides a carefully detailed dissection of cosmopolitanism, as theory and as sets of practices. The authors have produced an extremely useful resource for future analyses of the placing of cosmopolitanism in the emerging world dis/order.'

- John Urry, Distinguished Professor, Department of Sociology, Lancaster University, UK

'The authors demonstrate the sociological significance of cosmopolitanism in an imaginative and methodologically sophisticated way. They have made an invaluable contribution to the growing literature on cosmopolitanism.'

- Gerard Delanty, Professor of Sociology and Social& Political Thought, University of Sussex, UK

'[This] book is highly illuminating and instructive as to what can and should be understood under cosmopolitanism, and how the phenomena of cosmopolitanism can be studied. Scholars of globalization will find in this a highly useful orientation guide to the various sociological theories of cosmopolitanism, and in particular a fresh and empirically based synthesis that directs to possible research on the subject.'

- Professor Motti Regev, Department of Sociology, Political Science and Communication, The Open University of Israel
