Описание: `Stevenson`s exciting collection takes the issue of cultural citizenship far beyond the liberal concerns with tolerance, diversity, social rights and obligations. The attainment of such citizenship, the author`s argue, is conditional on positive cultural democratization, that is, the availability of cultural resources (semiotic and material) essential for meaningful and critical life, as well as the public institutions protecting us "from the excesses of the free market". Both are considered within the context of the IT revolution ("electronic democracy"), new social movements (especially feminist), and identity formation. The volume, especially the contributions by Turner, Crossley, Elliott, Yeatman and Frosh, demonstrates the vitality of theoretical reflection linking citizenship, culture and democracy` - Jan Pakulski, University of Tasmania`Culture` and `citizenship` are two of the most hotly contested concepts in the social sciences.What do they really mean?

Описание: Through a detailed introductory discussion of the relation between the civil and the political, and between recognition and representation, this book provides a
comprehensive vocabulary for understanding citizenship. It uses the work of T H Marshall to frame the critical interrogation of how ethnic, technological, ecological, cosmopolitan,
sexual and cultural rights relate to citizenship. The authors show how the civil, political and social meanings of citizenship have been redefined by postmodernization and

Описание: This book offers an extended discussion of citizenship and participation based on the experience of people largely excluded from the processes of governance
and development. The contributors to this volume detail the exclusion of the low castes, the poor, women and tribals in their everyday relationship with the state and with the wider
society. In this extended understanding, citizenship is rescued from its universal legal status to include the differential positioning of powerless groups.
is conceptualised not merely as a voting/electoral mechanism with citizens having a legitimate and equitable stake in the processes of development and governance. What follows is a
discussion of 'participatory citizenship', which is about altering the existing relationship between the state and its vulnerable citizenry and, simultaneously, about the construction of new
relationships between the powerless and the dominant. While discussing the possibilities of inclusion, the volume also explores the problematic of inclusion in the processes of
development and governance.
