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.
