From 'People' to 'Citizen' : Democracy's Must Take Road, Hardback Book

From 'People' to 'Citizen' : Democracy's Must Take Road Hardback


From `People' to `Citizen' brings together social theory with policy practice to enlarge our understanding of the difference that democracy makes to the life of a nation.

Unlike nationalism, democracy takes our attention away from the past to the future by focusing on the specific concerns of `citizenship'.

Historical victories or defeats, blood and soil are now nowhere as relevant as the creation of a foundational base where individuals have equal, and quality, access to health, education, and even urban services.

The primary consideration, therefore, is on empowering `citizens' as a common category and not `people' of any specific community or class.

When citizens precede all other considerations, the notion of the `public' too gets its fullest expression.

Differences between citizens are not denied, in fact encouraged, but only after achieving a basic unity first.

This book argues that the call of citizenship not only advances democracy, but social science as well. Please note: Taylor & Francis does not sell or distribute the Hardback in India, Pakistan, Nepal, Bhutan, Bangladesh and Sri Lanka
