I recommend the book quite highly for personal edification and education, but as a course text it has drawbacks.

Nigel Dower has spent most of his professional life as a philosopher writing about global ethics/world ethics. The impetus for his writings derives from an individual concern for poverty in the south in contrast to his position in the north. His first book published in 1983, World Poverty: Challenge and Response, reflects this. Through his teachings in ethics and international relations, he also begins to think about broader issues of international relations, but also the environment and war and peace.

In this short introduction to the idea of global citizenship, Nigel Dower examines the arguments from ethical, social and political theory for and against the view that we are global citizens. The discussion is set in its historical context but the main emphasis is on the idea of global citizenship as a cultural process, and its application in the modern world. The book is divided into three parts -- the Framework, which explores the historical context and the ethical and institutional aspects of the concept of global citizenship; Applications, covering key areas of current global concern, including the environment, aid and poverty elimination, human rights, peace, and global governance; and Theoretical Issues, which explores the arguments for and against global citizenship in more depth. The book includes chapters on the environment, aid and poverty, human rights, peace, and global governance, as well as a chapter placing issues surrounding September 11th in the context of global citizenship. It also covers the role of the UN; anti-globalization campaigns (e.g. in Genoa); corporate global citizenship; Oxfam; Amnesty International; and Jubilee 2000.

I used this as a main text for a course on Global Citizenship at Central College, Pella, Iowa. Both the course and the text were cumbersome because they attempted to wrap an overview of globalization with ethical issues. I don't mind such dense reading on my own, but students balked at the reading loads (100 pp. per week, with supplements) and they felt lost in the plethora of challenging information.

Even worse was the fact that this is issued as a print-on-demand book, published in the UK. We spent the first three weeks reading photocopies of chapters from the book until it actually arrived at the bookstore. That alone is a poor statement about the efficiencies of the global market in on-demand printing.

I recommend the book quite highly for personal edification and education, but as a course text it has drawbacks.

Exactly the book that I needed for a class I am teaching at the university.
