Description - Citizenship by Derek Heater

This book describes, analyses and interprets the topic of citizenship in a global context as it has developed historically, in its variations as a political concept and status, and the ways in which citizens have been and are being educated for that status. The topic is complex and the available, growing literature is considerable. Accordingly, in an attempt to provide the reader with a manageable single volume, the book is divided into three parts; History analysis and synthesis. The historical survey covers the range from the Greeks to the twentieth century, and reveals the legacies which each era passed on to later centuries. Similarly, the part devoted to analysis explains the meaning of citizenship and tackles the issue of whether there can be a generally accepted, holistic understanding of the idea(1). The third part attempts to provide a solution. For this edition an Epilogue has been written to demonstrate how vigorous the academic and pedagogical debates on the subject have been and how alive have been the practical matters relating to the status since 1990. Anyone interested in the topical subject of citizenship and wishing to read a single, thorough treatment will find this unique book interesting and valuable.
