About

Rethinking Europe – that is the theme of this book. The cosmopolitan view on Europe, conceived in notions, could well be the starting point for new action opportunities.

This book is the last installment of Ulrich Beck's trilogy on cosmopolitan realism; each of these volumes – being complementary interpretations one of another – can be read and perceived for itself: The cosmopolitan view arises the perspective; a glance that is an idiosyncracy from the global era of power and counterpower, which is geared on to the crucial question of postnational legitimity of power; ultimately testified in this example: Cosmopolitan Europe.
