Cosmopolitan Culture

About The Book

From Simon & Schuster, Cosmopolitan Culture is Bonnie Menes Kahn's exploration of the gilt-edged dream of a tolerant city.

"The author attempts to identify common features of great cities, past and present. Consequently, the reader is shuttled breathlessly from Babylon to Constantinople to Vienna to New York with brief side junkets. Kahn concludes that common characteristics of the great city meaning and purpose, tolerance, etc.created an environment where outsiders felt welcome to join the cosmopolitan culture and in the process strengthen it." —Library Journal
