`This is a rich and timely collection that highlights the complex and multi-layered nature of contemporary citizenship. Its editors, as well as many of the contributors to this well organized volume, are among the top scholars working on the issue. Political, economic, social and cultural dimensions of citizenship are examined and the relationships of citizenship to collectivities below and above the "nation-state" level are elaborated' - Nira Yuval-Davis, University of Greenwich `Migration, globalization, European unification and other social changes all challenge conventional wisdom about citizenship. Social science brings crucial perspectives to contemporary debates over civil rights, political belonging, minorities and the public sphere. This volume not only summarizes the recent wave of scholarship but casts it in new light by situating current concerns in historical context and attending to both theoretical debates that cross disciplines' - Craig Calhoun, New York University `This book provides a very useful entry point into the many and wide-ranging debates about citizenship and about rights. It locates the citizenship discussion very well, thereby helping us to understand why there has been such an explosion of interest in such a long-standing notion of Western political thought' - Jane Jenson, Professor of Political Science, Universite de Montreal 'The contributions of Woodiwiss, Lister and Sassen are outstanding but not unrepresentative of the many merits of this excellent collection'- The British Journal of Sociology
