      1. Beck argues that in the age of catastrophe, crisis, and risks on a global scale, a politics of nation-states and national interests must be replaced by a ‘cosmopolitan realpolitik’ with the capacity to confront these systemic and diffuse issues. See in particular Chapter 2 Critique of the National Outlook and Chapter 4 Power and Counter-Power in the Global Age: The Strategies of Capital.
