Walkowitz argues that modernist literary style has been crucial to new ways of thinking and acting beyond the nation.   She is the author of Modernist Commitments: Ethics, Politics and Transnational Modernism (Columbia University Press, ) and Modernist Fiction, Cosmopolitanism and the Politics of Community (Cambridge University Press, ); the editor of A Companion to Virginia Woolf (Wiley, ) and the reprint edition of Purdah and Polygamy by.

        Cosmopolitanism Today.

Thereby, Socialist Cosmopolitanism pays homage, I think, to Joseph R. Levenson’s short but brilliant work, Revolution and Cosmopolitanism: The Western Stage and the Chinese Stages (), which situates the cosmopolitan spirit of the s within modern China’s turbulent transition “from a world to a nation in the world.”.

Book Description: In this broad-ranging and ambitious intervention in the debates over the politics, ethics, and aesthetics of cosmopolitanism, Rebecca L. Walkowitz argues that modernist literary style has been crucial to new ways of thinking and acting beyond the nation.
