The civic ideal in world history, politics and education

Derek Heater

Published by Manchester University Press

  • This book describes, analyses and interprets the topic of citizenship in a global context as it has developed historically, in its variations as a political concept and status, and the ways in which citizens have been and are being educated for that statu
  • The topic is complex and the available, growing literature is considerable
  • Accordingly, in an attempt to provide the reader with a manageable single volume, the book is divided into three parts: History, Analysis and Synthesis
  • The third part introduced, when the book was first published, the notion of 'multiple citizenship'
  • For this edition an Epilogue has been written to demonstrate how vigorous have been the academic and pedagogical debates on the subject and how alive have been the practical matters relating to the status since 1990
  • Anyone interested in the topical subject of Citizenship and wishing to read a single, thorough treatment will find this unique book interesting and valuable; those who know the highly-regarded first edition will welcome this revised edition
