Thanks to advances in international communication and travel, it has never been easier to connect with the rest of the world. As philosophers debate the consequences of globalization, cosmopolitanism promises to create a stronger global community. Cosmopolitanism in the Age of Globalization examines this philosophy from numerous perspectives to offer a comprehensive evaluation of its theory and practice. Bringing together the works of political scientists, philosophers, historians, and economists, the work applies an interdisciplinary approach to the study of cosmopolitanism that illuminates its long and varied history. This diverse framework provides a thoughtful analysis of the claims of cosmopolitanism and introduces many overlooked theorists and ideas. This volume is a timely addition to sociopolitical theory, exploring the philosophical consequences of cosmopolitanism in today's global interactions.

Michael Palmer was born in London in 1963. He took an apprenticeship with British Airways in 1980 and, once completed, he joined a flight simulation company. In the mid-1980s the opportunity arose for him to work as a technician in the printing industry. Throughout the 1990s he wrote short sketches and one-liners for a variety of shows on BBC radio and ITV, before concentrating on writing projects. Michael has had a lifelong interest in cars - Alvis, Bently, Bristol, Jaguar and Morgan - and can be spotted regularly on the Kent roads at the wheel of his royal ivory 1997 Morgan 4/4.
