Traveling Back

Toward a Global Political Theory

Susan McWilliams

  • The first book to explore a heretofore neglected travel-story tradition in Western political thought - a tradition that is at the very heart of Western political thinking.
  • Shows the ways in which today's "alternative" schools of political thought - comparative political thought, contemporary cosmopolitan political thought, and postcolonial political thought - are in fact operating at the heart of the tradition of Western political theory.
