* 'Andrew Kuper addresses a very important dichotomy in the contemporary world in which the global economic relations are very inadequately matched by global political organization of a democratic kind. In 'Democracy Beyond Borders', Kuper proposes a way of thinking about this challenge which deserves serious attention. The demands of global justice call for many institutional reforms, and Kuper's proposal represents a significant initiative in this critically important field.' -Amartya Sen, Lamont University Professor, Harvard University

* 'Democracy Beyond Borders boldly argues for a cosmopolitan political philosophy with specific institutional implications. Andrew Kuper develops an original theory claiming that a plurality of institutions could form the basis for a system of global governance not shackled to obsolete statist assumptions. Anyone interested in the politics and ethics of institutional design should read this admirable and innovative book.' -Robert O. Keohane, James B. Duke Professor of Political Science, Duke University

* 'In this ambitious first work, Andrew Kuper employs the range and rigor of political philosophy to rethink its traditional concepts and aspirations for the politics of the 21st century. He concretely envisions new institutional forms that would enhance the expertise and political influence at citizens' disposal. In multiple ways, these innovations would make power more responsive to those over whom it is exercised. Kuper provides learned and usable political guidance to those who can affect the emerging institutional structures of our globalizing world.' -Thomas Pogge, Professor of Philosophy, Columbia University

Impressive in its scope and inventiveness, Democracy Beyond Borders stands at the forefront of a new generation of political thought which reassesses the philosophical foundations of the global order. Developing an innovative political theory of representation, The book provides compelling answers as to how we can ensure that global leaders act responsively and effectively in the interests of global citizens. It proposes practical reforms to the United Nations and other major institutions.

Readership: Scholars and students of international relations, political theory, international law, political philosophy, globalization, and business; international policy makers
