Citizenship and Capitalism : The Debate over Reformism, Hardback Book

Citizenship and Capitalism : The Debate over Reformism Hardback

Part of the Routledge Library Editions: Social Theory series

Description

In this study of politics in capitalist society Bryan Turner explores the development of citizenship as a way of demonstrating the effective use of political institutions by the working class and other subordinate groups to promote their interests.

Marxist criticisms of reformism are rejected; it is shown that subordinate groups can achieve significant advances in social and economic rights, and that democracy is not a sham but a necessary mechanism for the pursuit of interests.
