Format: Hardcover
This is a stimulating and original piece of work. Quill maps out the history of liberal and republican political theories and re-interprets them in this age of globalisation. At the heart of this book is a new definition of citizenship which questions the cherished beliefs in liberalism confined as they have been by the narrow boundary of the nation state. No longer are we simply citizens of a particular country but `world citizens' where our government's dealings in other parts of the world are questioned and protested against.

Quill's term for this new state of world citizenship is `cosmorepublicanism'. Technological advances have changed the face of the planet - the world has become a smaller place (`postmodern geographies') - and changed the way that power is gained and used. But new technologies have also ushered in the new form of resistance and protest outlined in this book. Communication, the specific example here being the internet (political involvement is a just a `click of a mouse away'), has enabled people to forge allegiances, not based on identities constrained by physical/national borders, but more likely to be based on a self-determined morality.

`Liberty after Liberalism' spends a fair amount of space in a historical outlining of liberal and republican theories. However, Quill goes further than a descriptive approach to his subject by suggesting a `nomadic' approach to political activism, appropriate to, and enabled by, cyber spatial communications.

The cosmo-rebuplican is `autonomous, tolerant, open-minded and willing to change their opinions through reasoned debates'. Being such a person involves an ironic element, which is about the necessity of realising the limits of one's power yet still doing what one can.
