Adrian Oldfield explores what it is that makes an individual a citizen showing that the civic-republican tradition of political thinking which includes Machiavelli, Rousseau, Hegel and Toqueville has much to contribute to modern debates about 'active citizenship' and the idea of 'community'. He argues persuasively that citizens have duties rather than rights, and that the 'freedom' of citizens consists in actively governing themselves rather than simply being left alone and undisturbed by the political realm.
