Rethinking Australian Citizenship/Hudson, Wayne//Paper/052159670X/S026-F
Cambridge University Press
The notion of citizenship has recently been taken up internationally as a way of rethinking questions of social cohesion and social justice. In Europe, the concept of national identity is under close scrutiny, while the pressures of globalising markets and the power of transnational corporations everywhere raise questions about the true place and meaning of citizenship in civil society. In Australia, a one people with a special relationship to one land has been challenged from a range of differing perspectives.
Rethinking Australian Citizenship makes a major contribution to the literature on this topic. Some chapters look at contemporary theoretical debates, while others "reinvent" Australian citizenship from a particular perspective on civil life. All contributors are leading analysts in their chosen field, and their complementary essays add up to a thorough and comprehensive examination the many dimensions of contemporary citizenship. The result is a rich and coherent volume that shows the diverse ways in which Australian citizenship can be re-imagined.
