Rethinking Equality

The Challenge of Equal Citizenship

Chris Armstrong

Published by Manchester University Press

Reappraising the Political MUP

  • Accessible and comprehensive, this book provides a clear, critical and up-to-date account of the most important contemporary egalitarian theories, including the work of Rawls, Dworkin and the luck egalitarians, Anne Phillips, Iris Young and Nancy Fraser
  • Relates egalitarian theories to contemporary political (and especially citizenship) practice, assessing them in relation to the impact of neoliberalism on contemporary welfare states, and the shift from 'social' to 'active' forms of citizenship
  • Focuses on four key issues in political theory: the recognition / redistribution debate, the connection between equality and responsibility, the ideal of equal opportunities, and the significance of 'globalisation' for the politics of equal citizenship
  • Essential reading for students of contemporary political theory
