Bruce Robbins responds to this and other questions in Feeling Global. This is a brave, elegant, and timely book cognizant of global/local dialectics that are now pulling at the nation state and unravelling the paradoxes of liberal humanism. No rvey," Bruce Robbins yet hazards a wry perspective of cosmopolitan globailty and, chapter by chapter, articulates the paradoexes of feeling global yet remaining national in struggles and claims. The readings of English Patient, Kincaid, and the au pair postcolonial post-Bronte novels are worth the price of any cultural studies and hyper-literary admission.

Is global culture merely a pale and sinister reflection of capitalist globalization? Bruce Robbins responds to this and other questions in Feeling Global, a crucial document on nationalism, culturalism, and the role of intellectuals in the age of globalization.

Building on his previous work, Robbins here takes up the question of the status of international human rights. Robbins' conception of internationalism is driven not only by the imperatives of global human rights policy, but by an understanding of transnational cultures, thus linking practical policymaking to cultural politics at the expense of neither. Robbins' cultural criticism, in other words, affords us much more than an understanding of how culture "shapes our lives." Instead, Robbins shows, particularly in his discussions of Martha Nussbaum, Richard Rorty, Susan Sontag, Michael Walzer and others, how "culture" itself has become a term that blocks―for commentators on both the right and the left―serious engagement with the contemporary cosmopolitan ideal of a nonuniversalist discourse of human rights.

Rescuing "cosmopolitanism" itself from its connotations of leisured individuals loyal to no one and willing to sample all cultures at will, Feeling Global presents a compelling way to think about the ethical obligations of intellectuals at a time when their place in the new world order is profoundly uncertain.
