This book presents a clear and comprehensive overview of citizenship, which has become one of the most important political ideas of our time. The author, an experienced textbook writer and teacher, uses a postmodern theory of citizenship to ask topical questions as:

* Can citizenship exist without the nation-state?

* What should the balance be between our rights and responsibilities?

* Should we enjoy group as well as individual rights?

* Is citizenship relevant to our private as well as our public lives?

* Have processes of globalisation rendered citizenship redundant?
