Citizenship : A Contemporary Reader
This reader provides an accessible and comprehensive introduction to the key debates around the highly topical issue of citizenship. It focuses on the 20th century and is organized into three main parts: the institutional basis of citizenship (with sections on the state, the economy, civil society, and international society); citizenship and exclusion (with sections on gender, race and ethnicity, class, and generation, disability and sexuality); and enhancing citizenship (with sections on increasing responsibilities, enhancing rights, welfare and globalization). Extracts from British, American and European scholars have been included, along with a general introduction that provides the conceptual and historical context for the Reader. Each part has a short introduction, which introduces the sub-themes.
