Cosmopolitanism in a Multipolar World, Soft Sovereignty in Democratic Regional Powers, by J. Plagemann

Summary
Based on an analysis of the changing practice of sovereignty in Brazil, India and South Africa, this book argues that soft sovereignty provides an adequate, yet unrecognized, basis for a moderate, embedded and plural cosmopolitanism situated between globalism's demand for a world state and statism's defence of the status quo
