About this book

This edited collection explores citizenship in a transnational perspective, with a focus on Australia, Canada, and New Zealand. It adopts a multi-disciplinary approach and offers historical, legal, political, and sociological perspectives. The two overarching themes of the book are ethnicity and Indigeneity. The contributions in the collection come from widely respected international scholars who approach the subject of citizenship from a range of perspectives: some arguing for a post-citizenship world, others questioning the very concept itself, or its application to Indigenous nations.

Jatinder Mann is Assistant Professor in History at the Hong Kong Baptist University.

Reviews

“At a time when contests of national, global, Indigenous and ethnic citizenship are shaping our world and its future, this book examines both citizenship’s glittering promises and its betrayals. Adopting a transnational approach of special interest to scholars of settler-colonizer nations, an impressive array of leading scholars assesses its complex history and practice. Their valuable insights will assist us in better understanding the politics, significance and challenges of contemporary citizenship. “ (Ann McGrath, Professor of History, Australian National University and author of “Illicit Love: Interracial Sex and Marriage in the United States and Australia”, 2015)

“This is a unique and very necessary book, bridging the theoretical gaps between multiculturalism and Indigenous rights within three settler states. Multiculturalism literature has for too long ignored or poorly addressed the status of indigenous peoples. Featuring leading experts from around the world, this has the potential to be a foundational text. As settler states undergo major demographic and social shifts, this book will help academics, policy makers and students make better sense of the links between multiculturalism and indigenous settler relations.” (David B. MacDonald, Professor of Political Science, University of Guelph, Canada)

“These multidisciplinary essays by well-established and new commentators on British settler societies provide accessible and stimulating insights into the transition from imperial forms of political community towards national and supranational citizenship models. They deftly illustrate how longstanding issues of indigenous and migrant identity, rights and territory claims co-exist with current debates about differing notions of belonging in local and global settings. They are essential reading for introductory and advanced students within and beyond the Anglosphere.” (David Pearson, Adjunct Reader, Victoria University of Wellington, New Zealand)
