  • Rethinking equalityby Chris Armstrong

    Manchester University Press 2013; US$ 23.99

    Although formally equal, relations between citizens are actually characterised by many and varied forms of inequality.

And what is the connection between theories of equality and the contemporary politics of citizenship? Accessible... more...

  • Supranational citizenshipby Lynn Dobson

    Manchester University Press 2013; US$ 23.99

    Can we conceptualise a kind of citizenship that need not be of a nation-state, but might be of a variety of political frameworks? Bringing together political theory with debates about European integration, international relations and the changing nature of citizenship, this book, available at last in paperback, offers a coherent and innovative theorisation... more...

  • The Formation of Croatian National Identityby Alex J. Bellamy

    Manchester University Press 2013; US$ 69.99

    This volume assesses the formation of Croatian national identity in the 1990s.

In doing so it provides a new way of thinking about how national identity is formed and why it is... more...

  • Below the Radar: How Silence Can Save Civil Rightsby Alison L. Gash

    Oxford University Press 2015; US$ 44.99

    In 1993, the nation exploded into anti-same sex marriage fervor when the Hawaii Supreme Court issued its decision to support marriage equality for gay and lesbian couples. Opponents feared that all children, but especially those raised by lesbian or gay couples, would be harmed by the possibility of same-sex marriage, and warned of the consequences... more...

  • The Human Rights Act and the Assault on Liberty:by Parnesh Sharma

    5m Publishing Ltd 2011; US$ 24.64

    A major objective of the Human Rights Act (HRA) was to bring about a culture of rights in the UK. Its introduction fore-grounded questions about the use of rights to advance social justice issues and was the impetus for this research. At about the same time as the Act came into effect another law, Section 55, an antithesis of what the HRA promised,... more...

  • Rights of Manby Thomas Paine; Derek Matravers; Tom Griffith

    Wordsworth Editions Ltd 2013; US$ 4.49

  • Retheorising Statelessnessby Kelly Staples

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2012; Not Available

    Stateless persons are increasingly a concern of governments, international agencies and NGOs. Now, Kelly Staples supplies a much-needed political theorisation of statelessness. Her membership theory framework combines theory and contemporary case studies to demonstrate the connection between the protections of state membership, the burdens of statelessness... more...

  • Active Citizenshipby Bernard Crick; Andrew Lockyer

    Edinburgh University Press Ltd 2010; Not Available

    In recent years there has been much political talk and academic debate on the subject of active citizenship, to which Bernard Crick's work has been central. His 'mission statement' (repeated here) is to induce 'no less than a change in political culture', to replace passive democracy, grounded on unsocial individualism and consumer... more...
