Global Civil Society by Gideon Baker

Book Description

For many commentators, global civil society is revolutionising our approach to global politics, as new non-state-based and border-free expressions of political community challenge territorial sovereignty as the exclusive basis for political community and identity. This challenge 'from below' to the nation-state system is increasingly seen as promising nothing less than a reconstruction, or a re-imagination, of world politics itself. Whether in terms of the democratisation of the institutions of global governance, the spread of human rights across the world, or the emergence of a global citizenry in a worldwide public sphere, global civil society is understood by many to provide the agency necessary for these hoped-for transformations. Global Civil Society asks whether this idea is such a qualitatively new phenomenon after all; whether the transformation of the nation-state system is actually within its reach; and what some of the drawbacks might be.

Books By Author Gideon Baker

Future of Political Community by Gideon Baker Future of Political Community, Paperback (March 2013)

This text explores the alternative futures of political community and moves beyond the critique of what is wrong with existing, state-based forms of political community.

Hospitality and World Politics by Gideon Baker Hospitality and World Politics, Hardback (February 2013)

A long neglected concept in the field of international relations and political theory, hospitality provides a new framework for analysing many of the challenges in world politics today, from the search for peaceable relations between states to asylum and refugee crises.

Civil Society and Democratic Theory by Gideon Baker Civil Society and Democratic Theory, Hardback (April 2002)

This book introduces radically alternative models of civil society that have been developed outside the liberal democratic frame of reference, models which suggest that civil society does offer new and non-statist democratic possibilities.
