Citizenship and Identity
Towards a New Republic
Routledge – 2008 – 200 pages
Citizenship and Identity offers an analysis of contemporary politics and of the scepticism and apathy which characterise the political life of modern democracies. Starting from exploration of liberal-democracy and a critique of the fragmentation of contemporary politics, this book develops a republican perspective as an alternative framework for political institutions and civic participation.
