Review Text

'Risse introduces the important debates in global political philosophy with great clarity and insight. He covers a wide range of issues (human rights, global distributive justice, the environment, immigration, trade), and gracefully defends his own theory of pluralist internationalism while giving charitable consideration to other approaches. This is a terrific introduction to the topic.' - Anna Stilz, Princeton University, USA
