Book Description: Over the last ten years citizenship has become an area of interdisciplinary research and teaching in its own right. This book highlights that globalization poses new challenges for established understandings and practices of citizenship, and that intellectual work is required to fashion models of citizenship better suited to present problems and realities. In particular, this volume emphasizes the pluralization of identities and communities within states brought about by such forces as mass immigration, global communication, substate regionalism and more generally the fragmentation of modern notions of nation. The challenge is to devise forms of democracy and political identity adequate to these 'globalized' conditions. Ideally suited to anyone interested in globalization, cultural diversity and citizenship. : Review: 'What is the status of citizenship today? Can there be a transnational or cosmopolitan citizenship? But what kind of city would cosmopolitans inhabit as citizens? With keen insight and from a number of angles the papers collected in this volume explore these questions crucial in our time of globalization, mass migrations, and terror wars.'
