About the Author

Ulrich Beck, Professor of Sociology, Ludwig-Maximilian University in Munich


"Excites intellectual reflexivity and adds to our repertoire of knowledge, not only about cosmopolitanism but also about our current social, cultural and historical predicament. It is for this (but not only this) reason that we should sit up and listen to what [Beck] has to say."
Journal of Sociology

"Beck's contribution to the normative construction of a cosmopolitan vision in the world today inspires hope and confidence in a new era of global political and social relations."
Australian Journal of Political Science

"Once again, Ulrich Beck has brought a distinctive perspective to a major social issue. He rightly sees that cosmopolitanism cannot simply be wished into reality but can only be achieved on the basis of confronting basic issues of social inequality. We need to pay attention."
Craig Calhoun, New York University
