Parry, Jonathan (2008) Cosmopolitan values in a central Indian steel town. In: Werbner , Pnina , (ed.) Anthropology and the new cosmopolitanism: rooted, feminist and vernacular perspectives. Association of Social Anthropologists Monographs . Berg, Oxford, UK. ISBN 9781847881977
Anthropology and the New Cosmopolitanism inaugurates a new, situated, cosmopolitan anthropology. It examines the rise of postcolonial movements responsive to global rights movements, which espouse a politics of dignity, cultural difference, democracy, dissent and tolerance. The book starts from the premise that cosmopolitanism is not, and never has been, a 'western', elitist ideal exclusively. The book's major innovation is to show the way cosmopolitans beyond the North - in Papua New Guinea, Indonesia and Malaysia, India, Africa, the Middle East and Mexico - juggle universalist commitments with roots in local cultural milieus and particular communities.
