Who becomes a citizen and what citizenship means are undergoing redefinition in theory and practice. This volume assesses these developments from both a normative and an empirical perspective. The result is one of the most sophisticated and well-informed explorations currently available of how far citizenship has, should or could go beyond the traditional liberal democratic practices of nation states. * Richard Bellamy *
