Toni Erskine, Professor of International Politics, University of Aberystwyth
"Theoretically sophisticated and politically informed, combining contemporary work in political and moral philosophy with an immediate concern for with the laws of war and the proper treatment of the 'enemy'. The strength of the book is its clarity and rigour... Erskine's book is rewarding and useful. It will serve as a prompt for further work on these important questions and at the same time encourage close interaction between disciplines... as a first book this text suggests that Erskine will continue to produce rigorous and important work." - Joe Hoover, Millennium: Journal of International Studies
"In this wide-ranging and
exceptionally fair-minded book, Toni Erskine explores the possibility of a cosmopolitan position that takes account of the 'embeddedness' of moral experience... The debate [between cosmopolitanism and communitarianism] will continue, and will the better for Erskine's fine contribution." - Richard Vernon, Ethics & International Affairs
"Well-argued and provocative...creative and stimulating...Erskine has made a lasting contribution to this fascinating debate." - Georg Cavallar, Kantian Review
"Erskine seeks to bring together three disciplinary fields, moral philosophy, political philosophy, and normative IR theory; she does so in a clear
and lucid manner throughout, and since hardly any reader will have the expertise in all three of these fields that Erskine possesses, everyone will learn and take something from this book." - Christian Schemmel, 'Partiality Against Parochialism?', Global Justice: Theory Practice Rhetoric
