Condition: Near Fine.
From the cover: “A significant addition to the growing body of literature in the field, this wide-ranging overview explores the important role of citizenship in the world’s liberal democracies and how it is evolving. Long a neglected topic in the social sciences, citizenship is now at the forefront of scholarly discussions on democracy worldwide. In an increasingly global society, constructive dialogue on various themes shaping citizenship studies is indispensable.
Citizenship: Discourse, Theory, and Transnational Prospects reviews the four broadly conceived themes that shape contemporary citizenship — inclusion, erosion, withdrawal, and expansion -and highlights their interconnectedness. This important new look at the current and future state of citizenship will appeal to anyone interested in the study of immigration, political sociology, or globalization.”
