A landmark book in cosmopolitanism studies. The authors offer an original treatment of the subject - a cosmopolitanism grounded in real world settings. The focus on encountering cultural diffference is particualrly useful, especially the idea of 'cosmoscapes'. Similarly, the treatment of 'ordinary cosmopolitanism' is a real advance. This is a book that will satisfy readers new to the topic and challenge those who think they already understand cosmopolitanism.

This book is an important contra point to self-indulging theoretisations on cosmopolitanism. In a very accessible manner it probes the term in various real life situations thereby illustrating how cosmopolitanism can be a grounded, analytical category central to social science. It is a stimulating and valuable resource to scholars working empirically and interested in cosmopolitanism.

This book demonstrates the relevance of cosmopolitanism for an understanding of the world today.
It brings together very well the diverse strands in the literature. It is written in an accessible and engaging style.
Gerard Delanty
University of Sussex

The book is well written, clear and concise, demonstrating clear directions and plenty of social scientists’ accounts, but not hiding problem points and the limitations of the evolving processes of the global society. The book also refers to current, global encounters from the tragedy of Rwanda to the Western habit of “transnational adoptions of children”. It is clear that more research is needed with non-Western societies and working class people. According to their research evidence, it is accepted that the cosmopolitan discourse and disposition might lead to the increased level of tolerance and openness, which will make the world a better place.
