Such questions as What does it mean to be Australian? and How has Australian citizenship changed and developed over the past 100 years? are answered in this look at the inherent rights and obligations of Australian citizenship. The argument is made against the view that citizenship is an imagined construct as the significance of citizenship to the everyday life of Australians is revealed. From an examination of the Federation debates and the design of Australia's constitutional system to the shameful treatment of indigenous Australians and the second-tier status that women have often held, the text maps the complexity of being an Australian citizen. Current major issues facing citizenship are discussed, including national identity, the republic, multiculturalism, and human rights.
