From the Publisher"Like strong cosmopolitans, Mandle endorses a universalisticconception of human rights. Against them, he defends the widelyassumed moralsignificance of national borders - appealing not tocommon language, culture, history, or sentiments, but to sharedcitizenship in a state. This is a clear and promising attempt toexplain and develop some deeply held and widely shared intuitionsabout justice."

"A compelling argument for an internationalist position thatrecognizes the independence of nations and the fundamentalsignificance of social and political relations, yet which imposes avigorous duty to assist disadvantaged peoples to enable all to exercise a broad range of human rights.Mandle sympathetically responds to cosmopolitans’ concernswithout surrendering the field to cosmopolitan critics of thepriority of social and political justice."
