Citizenship and Identity
SAGE, Dec 7, 1999 - Political Science - 189 pages
Citizenship and Identity provides an introduction to key debates in sociology and social and political theory on postmodernization and globalization through a critical examination of the often contested concepts of citizenship and identity. The detailed introductory discussion of the relation between the civil and the political, between recognition and redistribution, gives a comprehensive vocabulary for understanding recent and on-going debates. Using the work of T.H.Marshall to frame the discussion of how diasporic, technological, ecological, cosmopolitan, sexual and cultural rights expand the definition of citizenship, the book shows how, in turn, civil, political and social rights have been transformed by postmodernization and globalization. Lucid and comprehensive, Citizenship and Identity will be essential reading for students and researchers in sociology, social and political theory and cultural studies.
