Over forty years after it first appeared, T.H. Marshall's seminal essay on citizenship and social class in postwar Britain has acquired the status of a classic. His lucid analysis of the principal elements of citizenship -- namely, the possession of civil, political and social rights -- is as relevant today as it was when it first appeared. It is reissued here with a complementary monography by Tom Bottomore in which the meaning of citizenship is re-examined, in very different historical circumstances. In asking how far the prospects for class equality have been realised, Bottomore continues the discussion in a context that encompasses the restoration of civil and political rights in Eastern Europe, problems of welfare capitalism, citizenship and the nation state and the broader issues of equality and democratic institutions.

Im Zeitalter der Globalisierung und Transnationalisierung ist die Institution nationaler Staatsbürgerschaft ins Zentrum wissenschaftlicher und politischer Auseinandersetzungen gerückt. Prozesse der Entgrenzung, der partiellen De-Nationalisierung und des tendenziellen Souveränitätsverlustes des Nationalstaates haben die mit nationaler Staatsbürgerschaft verbundenen Gewißheiten fraglich werden lassen. Das Feld wissenschaftlicher Diskussion beherrschten bisher weitgehend normativ geführte Debatten. Was fehlt, ist eine Soziologie der Staatsbürgerschaft, die diese Institution als Integrationsinstrument moderner Gesellschaften begreift und angesichts neuer und alter gesellschaftlicher Probleme wie sozialer Ungleichheit, Armut und Ausgrenzung, sozialer Gerechtigkeit, politischer Partizipation oder der zunehmenden ethnischen und kulturellen Heterogenisierung moderner Gesellschaften nach der analytischen Kapazität des Konzepts fragt. Der Band vereinigt klassische und zeitgenössische Beiträge, die eine sozialwissenschaftliche Perspektive eröffnen, und wendet sich an die Sozial-, Politik-, Wirtschafts- und Geschichtswissenschaften ebenso wie an Philosophie und Pädagogik.

Going beyond both traditional liberal theories of democracy and Marxist theories of civil society, leading international scholars rethink the relations between the individual and the state, community and family. They assess how social and political participation is changing in the modern world, investigate the historical roots of citizenship and its development alongside the nation state and urban society, and relate it to issues of welfare and the market. The final chapter asks whether the subordination of nation states to supranational institutions will replace state citizenship with a global conception of human rights.

Ideen, Interessen und Institutionen markieren drei Zugänge zur Strukturanalyse des menschlichen Zusammenlebens: Ideen sind der Ausdruck für die Wertbezogenheit des menschlichen Handelns, Interessen bestimmen die Richtung des sozialen Handelns, Institutionen verleihen diesem Dauer und Verbindlichkeit. Aus den Spannungsverhältnissen zwischen Ideen, Interessen und Institutionen erheben sich Struktur und Dynamik sozialer Ordnungen. Aus diesem Ansatz, der in der Tradition der Soziologie Max Webers liegt, werden die Rollen der Intellektuellen, die Ausbildung von Subkulturen, Schichten und Klassen, die Bedeutung der Institutionen für soziale Stagnation und sozialen Wandel und der Nationalstaat als Ordnungsidee analysiert.

During the past decade, Anthony Giddens has published a series of substantial volumes that have defined a distinctive and original theoretical approach. The twin focal points of his research are the "theory of structuration" and the analysis of "modernity." Giddens' writing on these and related themes are widely recognized as among the most important contributions to theoretical debate in the social sciences. This is the first book to provide a systematic and critical assessment of Giddens' work. It includes eleven critical essays specially commissioned from contributors who are well known in their own fields. In a concluding essay, Giddens responds to the criticisms raised by these and other authors, and clarifies and elaborates on his current views.

Through a detailed introductory discussion of the relation between the civil and the political, and between recognition and representation, this book provides a comprehensive vocabulary for understanding citizenship. It uses the work of T H Marshall to frame the critical interrogation of how ethnic, technological, ecological, cosmopolitan, sexual and cultural rights relate to citizenship. The authors show how the civil, political and social meanings of citizenship have been redefined by postmodernization and globalization.

This work provides a complete record of the discussisons held and papers presented at a conference on `The Individual v. The State', held in Budapest at the Central European University, which focused on various theories about the nature and role of rights. Rights have the function of protecting the individual against collectivity, against restrictions of individual freedom and against the imposition of burdens on individuals for the sake of the common good. Joseph Raz argues in his introduction that rights cannot be understood in terms of these functions as this would distort the understanding of their role in morality and law. The book is divided into six parts, covering the following key topics: Concepts of Rights Transition to Rights--Rights in Transition Equality and Social Rights Minorities and Citizenship The International Dimension Economics of Rights It shows how varied the understanding of rights is among different theorists and in the practice of different countries, and will be of prime interest to academics involved in legal theory.
