World We Want: Virtue, Vice and the Good Citizen
by Mark Kingwell
his sixth book, political-cultural theorist Kingwell poses the
question of what citizenship means in an age of broken identities
and disintegrating nationalism.
book is about a new concept of citizenship.
The author believes that we have progressed from citizenship
based first on tribal loyalty, second on religious belief and more
recently legal status. In
light of globalism and the diminishment of the nation-state, we need
a definition of citizenship that is inclusive and not brutally
exclusive as the other forms often were.
