Overview

Citizenship has come under intense discussion recently because of threats to welfare and shifting immigration policies. The European Union has opened transnational citizenship rights and fledgling democracies throughout the world are struggling to establish their own versions of citizenship. Extending Citizenship, Reconfiguring States connects all these current discussions and places them in historical perspective. The book presents a thematically unified analysis of changing citizenship practices over two centuries_from the eve of the French Revolution to contemporary China. Showing how rights emerge with the appearance of new social groups and the reconfiguration of states, the authors identify conditions under which rights and citizenship expand as new groups develop within consolidated states as well as how rights and citizenship emerge within fragmented states with cross-cutting legal jurisdictions.

Editorial Reviews

Contemporary Sociology
A collection of very good articles, well edited by two outstanding scholars.
Ethnic and Racial Studies
An important attempt at reminding us that citizenship cannot be taken for granted as an inbuilt feature of nation-states. Comprehensive bibliography is provided at the end of this informative collection.
Booknews
Present 11 essays by sociologists, political scientists, and historians exploring the growth of the concepts of the citizen, the citizen's rights, and the citizen's responsibilities. The authors explore how these concepts may affect and be affected by the regional political grouping of the European Union. Among the topics discussed are the struggle against unemployment in Britain from 1884 to 1914, the prospects for transnational social policy, and women's collective agency as it affected the framing of citizenship rights. Also included is a bibliography listing related works. Annotation c. Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
