Editorial Reviews

Review


"For an author with a background in political philosophy, this book is a courageous move into the world of social science...the book is a welcome addition to the scholarship on why and how new state policies emerge and spread around the world...Kymlicka's seamless integration of ethical, causal, and policy-directed questions is no small feat, resulting in a project of intense interest to a wide range of scholars and policy-makers in multiple fields."--Ethics & International Affairs


"A compelling brief on behalf of multiculturalism's global odyssey"--International History Review

3 of 6 people found the following review helpful By Lee Cheek on May 14, 2008
Format: Paperback
In assessing the expanding international attention devoted to the protection of ethnic and cultural minorities, Kymlicka (Queen's Univ., Canada) has become one of the major advocates of a liberal multiculturalism as the guiding principle of such pursuits. This book serves as an extension of his earlier scholarship, as well as an attempt to integrate the political theory of multiculturalism with the insights of empirical political analysis. Liberal multiculturalism, Kymlicka argues, is an outgrowth of the longstanding emphasis upon human rights in international politics, and is not based upon notions of cultural relativism. The major purpose of the book is to analyze "the current process of internationalizing multiculturalism" and the obstacles involved with the implementation of the concept. In the first of three major divisions of the work, Kymlicka explores the success of liberal multiculturalism and the decline of traditional views of the state, sovereignty, and ethnic politics. The second part is a survey of the "logic of liberal multiculturalism" and an exploration of the potential threat that liberal multiculturalism presents to existing understandings of human rights and state sovereignty. Finally, Kymlicka reviews the efforts of international organizations to utilize liberal multiculturalism in practice.
