This book draws from debates in political theory, cultural studies and sociology, and focuses on issues such as: The reshaping of citizenship by globalization New social movements The decline of the nation- state The impact of popular culture Stevenson argues that questions of cosmopolitanism are increasingly likely to emerge within these contexts. Whether we are discussing the destruction of the environment, issues of cultural policy, the city or consumer culture these questions can all be linked to cosmopolitan dimensions.
