Rethinking Australian Citizenship by Wayne Hudson

Book Description

The notion of citizenship is now being taken up internationally as a way to rethink questions of social cohesion and social justice. In Europe the concept of national identity is under close scrutiny, while the pressures of globalizing markets and the power of transnational corporations everywhere raise questions about the true place and meaning of citizenship in civil society. In Australia, a traditional view of citizens belonging to a single nation made up of one people, with a special relationship to one land, has been thrown open to challenge by a range of differing perspectives. Rethinking Australian Citizenship considers the major debates. Some chapters look at contemporary theoretical debates, while others 'reinvent' Australian citizenship from a particular perspective on civil life. The result is a rich and coherent volume that shows the diverse ways in which Australian citizenship can be rethought.

Enlightenment and Modernity by Wayne Hudson Enlightenment and Modernity, Paperback (January 2016)

The writers known as the English deists were not simply religious controversialists, but agents of reform who contributed to the emergence of modernity.

English Deists by Wayne Hudson English Deists, Paperback (January 2016)

Interprets the works of an important group of writers known as 'the English deists'.

It contextualizes these writers within the early Enlightenment, which was multivocal, plural and in search of self definition.

Atheism and Deism Revalued by Wayne Hudson Atheism and Deism Revalued, Hardback (November 2014)

In the seventeenth and eighteenth century the terms 'atheism' and 'deism' involved fine distinctions that have not always been preserved by later scholars.
