From Subject to Citizen

Alistair Davidson

$43.99

Paperback
'... wonderfully broad-ranging ... this is a book with which any serious scholar of Australian citizenship will need to engage'. Australian Historical Studies

- Publisher This important, theoretically sophisticated work explores the concepts of liberal democracy, citizenship and rights. Grounded in critical original research, the book examines Australia's political and legal institutions, and traces the history and future of citizenship and the state in Australia. The central theme is that making proofs of belonging to the national culture a precondition of citizenship is inappropriate for a multicultural society such as Australia. This becomes an object lesson for the multicultural regional politics throughout the world.
