About the Authors
  • Carol Gould addresses the fundamental issue of democratizing globalization, or finding ways to open transnational institutions and communities to democratic participation by those widely affected by their decisions. Gould develops a framework for expanding participation in cross-border decisions, arguing for a broader understanding of human rights. In addition, she introduces a new role for the ideas of care and solidarity at a distance. Her accessible text will be a major new contribution to political philosophy.

    • Gould is a well-respected political philosopher and is the main selling point for this book
    • Globalization is still a highly topical subject
    • Books on political theory are a particular strength of our list

    Reviews & endorsements

    "[This book] is wide-ranging, thought-provoking, and challenging. There is plenty here to interest political theorists concerned with democracy and justice, human rights, cultural difference, women's issues, economic organization, technology, and the international system. On all these issues, gould's voice is powerful and original." Notre Dame Philosophical Reviews, John S. Dryze, Australian National University

    "Carol Gould's new book is a state-of-the-art treatment of the most exciting and contested issue in political philosophy today--that of global justice."
    Omar Dahbour, Social Theory and Practice

    "Globalizing Democracy and Human Rights is a magnificent book. The final chapter, 'terrorism, empathy and democracy' is particularly revealing in the current global climate. By highlighting the ways in which the lack of democratic possibilities may contribute to the conditions of terrorism, Gould moves the debate beyond the facile moralizing of good and evil toward an approach grounded in the actual political conditions of the contemporary world order. This book should be required reading not just for political philosophers and international relations scholars but also, and perhaps especially, for foreign policy makers in the world's most powerful countries." - Fiona Robinson, Carleton University
