Description: "This is a superb piece of scholarship. Joppke manages to cover an extraordinary range of theoretical questions and empirical findings within a very compact and readable book. He coherently synthesizes and cogently brings together an array of different literatures that have often remained separate from one another. In doing so, he provides a lsquo;state of the artâ€² overview and analysis of the topics of citizenship and immigration." Marc Morjeacute; Howard, Georgetown University"Citizenship and Immigration is an outstanding analysis of one of the most dramatic developments in the contemporary world, especially in Europe - namely the impact of immigration on the reconstitution of citizenship and of discussions thereof. It is essential reading for anybody interested in the contemporary scene." S. N. Eisenstadt, Van Leer Jerusalem Institute"Few scholars know the citizenship and immigration literature like Christian Joppke. In this tour de force, Joppke moves nimbly from social theory to current policy developments in Europe, North America and Australia. He paints a nuanced picture of the liberal evolution of citizenship, remaining attentive to governmentsâ€² recent exclusionary moves. A must-read!" Irene Bloemraad, University of California, BerkeleyThis incisive book provides a succinct overview of the new academic field of citizenship and immigration, as well as presenting a fresh and original argument about changing citizenship in our contemporary human rights era.Instead of being nationally resilient or in postnational decline, citizenship in Western states has continued to evolve, converging on a liberal model of inclusive citizenship with diminished rights implications and increasingly universalistic identities. This convergence is demonstrated through a sustained comparison of developments in North America, Western Europe, and Australia. Topics covered in the book include: recent trends in nationality laws; what ethnic diversity does to social citizenship; the decline of multiculturalism yet continuing rise of antidiscrimination policies; and the new state campaigns to upgrade and re-nationalize citizenship in the post-2001 period.Sophisticated and informative, and written in a lively and accessible style, this book will appeal to upper-level students and scholars in sociology, political science, and immigration and citizenship studies.
