    Book synopsis: It thought to resist the destruction of neoliberalism, violence, war and moral disintegration that are key features of the 21st century? What is the role of criticism in an environment where the theory dealt with management criteria, rewarding what is harmless, conventional, trite? Introducing the major schools of radical political philosophy and critical legal thinking, Kostas Douzinas argues that the era globalization, modernization and cosmopolitanism move between the nihilism of unsatisfied desire and artificial arrangement value of nationalisms and religions. Opposite stands the boldness of thought and resistance. The cosmopolitanism of power result every time imperial adventures. Following Diogenes, Zeno, Benjamin and Nterrinta the "cosmopolitanism that comes" built here and now, with friends, with guest acts on the resistance cities. What connects us with an immigrant, a Palestinian or an unemployed Greek is not that we are all people with rights, citizens with identity or members of a closed community but our absolute uniqueness and our total liability beyond the citizen and man, beyond national and international. The world is the world is the real democracy of any and everyone. The city, infinite singularities meetings in the Constitution, in the squares, in solidarity. So confronting the radical desire to disasters of the past and the future promise of justice than any law, constitution or right.
