Summary "Lawrence Wilde introduces the concept of global solidarity and explains how it relates to nationalism, gender, religion and culture. Looking to the future, he explores the politics of global solidarity and the conditions required for its development. Solidarity has been a mobilising word since entering the political vocabulary in the mid-19th century, and conjures images of united action in pursuit of social justice. But is solidarity among strangers is a meaningful aspiration in our globalising age? Key Features: Distinguishes between various conceptualisations of solidarity ; Critically examines the work of Rorty, Honneth, Touraine, Habermas and Fraser ; Argues for a radical humanist alternative grounded in virtue ethics ; Examines areas of social division - nation, gender and religion - and suggests how to reconcile them."--Publisher's website
