What is included with this book?


Reviewing recent cosmopolitan thinking and theorizing from the somewhat chastened perspective of the twenty-first century, Cosmopolitanism and Belonging questions the social bases of cosmopolitanism and the continuing importance of nationalism. With an especial focus on European integration which loomed large in the cosmopolitan visions of a few years ago, Craig Calhoun addresses the ways in which cosmopolitan theories may be biased from the standpoint of European and American elites and indeed the heritage of liberal thought. This intellectually stimulating and timely book, written by one of the top social scientists today, deals with a topical area of study as Cosmopolitanism has rapidly become one of the burning issues in the social sciences today. Cosmopolitanism and Belonging has a distinct focus on identity and belonging, analyzing a multidisciplinary area, so is an ideal purchase for students, academics and social scientists researchingdisciplines of sociology, politics and cultural studies.
