This edited volume analyzes citizenship through attention to its Others, revealing the partiality of citizenship's inclusion and claims to equality by defining it as legal status, political belonging and membership rights. Established and emerging scholars explore the exclusion of migrants, welfare claimants, women, children and others.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"Citizenship and its Others invites readers to look beyond common-sense understandings of citizenship. It provides a sharp and engaging reminder that race, class, gender and sexuality are all of importance in shaping how we experience both a sense of belonging and a perception of the 'other'. It is a challenge to us all to rethink the terms of both discourse and politics about citizenship in our contemporary environment." -John Solomos, University of Warwick, UK

"The relations between historical repertoires of the imagination of 'others' and citizenship are enlivened in this collection. By treating debate as an intellectual and political force a call-and-response activates debates on citizenship beyond a prior formulations of states and differentiated populations. What often becomes a dry conversation in the hands of academics is opened up as a live and fully present set of interventions." - Nirmal Puwar, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK

"This much needed book brings together established and emerging scholars from a range of disciplines to show that the idea of the 'good citizen' provides a mechanism for nation states to exclude its unwanted others. Cutting through the lies and political mystifications about migration this book offer gives us new insight into the key problem of the 21st century." - Les Back, Goldsmiths, University of London, UK
