Citizenship: A Very Short Introduction Paperback

Part of the Very Short Introductions series



Interest in citizenship has never been higher. But what does it mean to be a citizen of a modern, complex community?

Why is citizenship important? Can we create citizenship, and can we test for it? In this fascinating Very Short Introduction, Richard Bellamy explores the answers to these questions and more in a clear and accessible way.

He approaches the subject from a political perspective, to address the complexities behind the major topical issues.

Discussing the main models of citizenship, exploring how ideas of citizenship have changed through time from ancient Greece to the present, and examining notions of rights and democracy, he reveals the irreducibly political nature of citizenship today.
