- The Divided West is a major intervention by one of the most highly regarded political thinkers of our time.
- In this important new volume, Habermas responds to the dramatic political events of the period since 9/11 and maps out a way to move the political agenda forward, beyond the acrimonious debates which have pitched opponents of the war against the Bush Administration and its ‘coalition of the willing'.
- The author develops a detailed model of transnational and supranational governance inspired by Kantian cosmopolitanism and situates it in the context of the evolution of international law towards a cosmopolitan constitutional order during the 19th and 20th centuries.
- The book will be essential reading for students of sociology, politics, international relations and international law, and it will be of great interest to anyone concerned with the current and future course of European and international politics.
