This wide-ranging, historically informed study examines the career of the culture concept and related notions of context in comparative and international politics, tracing connections through the disciplines of anthropology and history as well as through issues in nationalism and democracy. Particular attention is paid to the way in which culture as context is implicated in some of the most problematic dichotomies in world politics, as well as to how culture may be re-conceptualized in a theory of cosmopolitan pluralism.
Stephanie Lawson is at the School of Political, Social and International Studies, University of East Anglia.
