Cosmopolitan Political Thought asks the question of what it might mean for the very practices of political theorizing to be cosmopolitan. Lucid, wide-ranging and well-informed, Farah Godrej's book is a significant contribution to an important and emerging field of enquiry that is destined to transform existing power relations in political theory. -Rajeev Bhargava, Centre for the Study of Developing Societies, India.

Cosmopolitan Political Thought is a rmative argument for applying the idea of cosmopolitanism to the discipline of political theory itself. It is inspired by two recent turns in political thought: the emergence of a rmative interest in the idea of cosmopolitanism and a new paradigmatic framework calledcomparative political theory. The first phemen is driven by a recovery of ancient Stoic and Greek claims about the kosmou polites orworld citizen. The second, related, turn comes from a recognition of the relationship between traditional political. theory and n-Western political ideas.

Cosmopolitan Political Thought asks the question of what it might mean for the very practices of political theorizing to be cosmopolitan. It suggests that such a vision of political theory is intimately linked to methodological questions about what is commonly called comparative political theory--namely, the turn beyond ideas and modes of inquiry determined by traditional Western scholarship. It is therefore an argument for applying the idea of cosmopolitanism--understood in a particular way--to the discipline of political theory itself. As Farah Godrej argues, there are four crucial components of this cosmopolitan intervention: the texts under analysis, the methods for interpreting non-Western texts and ideas, the application of these ideas across geographical and cultural boundaries, and the deconstruction of Eurocentrism. In order to be genuinely cosmopolitan, Godrej states, political theorists must reflect on their perspectives inside and outside various traditions and immerse themselves in foreign ideas, languages, histories, and cultures--ultimately relocating themselves within their disciplinary homes. The result will be a serious challenge to accepted solutions to political life.
