Reviews

'This is an outstanding book, and an exceptionally worthwhile contribution to the growing literature on cosmopolitanism. It brings together some of the leading contributors to recent debates and offers a valuable critical perspective on claims for European 'exceptionalism' in relation to cosmopolitanism.' - William Outhwaite, Professor of Sociology, Newcastle University, UK

'This volumes makes a much needed contribution to the growing literature on cosmopolitanism in the social sciences. The chapters offer a careful critical assessment of the limits and relevance of the idea of a European cosmopolitanism'. - Gerard Delanty, Professor of Sociology, University of Sussex, UK

'Robertson and Krossa have put together valuable critiques of the very current but fuzzy notion of European cosmopolitanism. They see cosmopolitanism as an ambiguous, ahistorical, and internally inconsistent normative ideal. And they see the idea that it is especially European as provincial rather than analytically useful.' - John W. Meyer, Professor of Sociology, Emeritus, Stanford University, USA

'A major international contribution to an empirical and analytic interpretation of the global cosmopolis' - Bryan S Tuner, Presidential Professor of Sociology, The City University of New York, USA

'Considering cosmopolitanism as a response to globalization, the volume offers challenging analyses of current trends. European Cosmopolitanism in Question comprises brilliant contributions by leading authors that constitutes both a lucid introduction and an original and challenging advancement to the debate.' - Frank Welz, Innsbruck University, Austria

'Penetrating analyses, deep thinking, intrepid critiques Robertson and Krossa have assembled an outstanding collection of essays on a key concept in contemporary social theory. This book offers a much-needed reconfiguration and broadening of the cosmopolitanism debate.' - John Boli, Professor of Sociology, Emory University, USA
