  • Politics and Culture: A Theory, Culture & Society Series

    Politics and Culture analyses the complex relationships between civil society, identities and contemporary states. Individual books will draw on the major theoretical paradigms in politics, international relations, history and philosophy within which citizenship, rights and social justice can be understood. The series will focus attention on the implications of globalization, the information revolution and postmodernism for the study of politics and society. It will relate these advanced theoretical issues to conventional approaches to welfare, participation and democracy.

    The production of this edited volume has taken a long time given that it was interrupted by my own ill health and a multitude of other delays. In this respect I would particularly like to thank Bryan S. Turner, Robert Rojek and Chris Rojek for their patience. In the final stages the encouragement of Lucy James, Anthony Elliott, Mike Kenny, David Moore and Maurice Roche has been particularly helpful.

    The book is dedicated to Jagdish Patel and Gaye Flounders, two of the best ‘cultural’ citizens I know.
