Transformation of Citizenship : Struggle, Resistance and Violence (Vol 3) (Hardcover)
About this item
This volume Struggle, Resistance, and Violence examines the fact that all over the world the rights of citizens have come under enormous pressure and addresses the many way in which people are ‘making claims’ against both autocratic and democratic authority. Without any doubt rule-breaking, riots and violent upheavals have become an aspect of political struggles for citizenship. The book takes up a conflict perspective that directs attention to these recent phenomena. It stresses the necessity of a careful analysis of resistance and violence as critical factors for coming to terms with social conflicts for citizenship from Europe to South America, from the Near East and the Far East and the Arab World.
