Brand New, Unread Copy in Perfect Condition. A+ Customer Service! Summary: 'Here is a notion of citizenship that looks to horizons far beyond the nation state. It also answers to our more intimate and shifting longings and belongings. An impressively theorized collection in which a creative gender analysis liberates citizenship from its usual narrow formalism.' - - Cynthia Cockburn, author of The Space Between Us and Research Professor in the Department of Sociology, City University London.This book, the product of a truly exciting conference, explores many of the key issues in the contestation of citizenship. Interweaving feminist and postcolonial perspectives, it brings fresh insights to the citizenship debate.' - Ruth Lister, Professor of Social Policy Loughborough University and author of Citizenship: Feminist Perspectives. This book makes a major contribution to broadening the discussion of citizenship. Not only are the cetnral questions of gender and difference incorporated organically, but anyone interested in global perspectives on a debate which can all too easily remain rooted in a small part of the world will learn a great deal from these essays. They raise issues which are too often forgotten and which no consideration of citizenship should ignore.' - Anne Showstack Sassoon, Professor of Politics, Kingston University, Kingston upon Thames, UK.

Riassunto: This is an important contribution toward an understanding of citizenship as mediated by other collective, historically determined identities: of gender, ethnicity, class and national status. It brings together prominent international scholars from moral philosophy, law, political science and sociology to offer a major reconceptualization of the idea of citizenship. Throughout, it is concerned with the dismantling of welfare states, the attack on civil society and the rise in state terror and religious and cultural fundamentalisms. Contributors demonstrate how the growing ambivalence of state sovereignty in the face of multinational capitalism and the absence of political accountability structures are complicit in the definitions of gendered citizenship. Against these, women's communal mobilization and political activism are considered in terms of their power effects and political potentialities; the book as a whole shows the need to negotiate and transcend difference and to find means for creating alliances across differences.
