If fundamental political categories were represented asgeometric shapes, citizenship would be one of those rotatingpolyhedrons with reflective surfaces that together create effectsof light and shade. With extraordinarily acute discernment, theleading philosopher Étienne Balibar examines one by one thevarious faces of this object, more numerous - and far more fissured- than one would imagine. The question of what it means to be acitizen has, from the dawn of Western politics, been anything butclear and straightforward; and modernity has shown it to be evenmore enigmatic and contested.

Inseparable from democracy, and the demands for equality andliberty from which democracy draws its origins, citizenship isconstantly being redefined within the unresolved contradictionbetween universal principles and the discriminatory mechanisms thatregulate membership of a political community.

Not everyone is a citizen, even within one nation-state. It hasbeen said that ?certain persons are in society without being ofsociety?. The dynamics of inclusion and exclusion continue togenerate dramatic asymmetries and create openings and closures,especially today in a time of particular fragility and whennational sovereignty is in flux. So are there too many antinomieswithin citizenship? Balibar does not shy away from theseantimonies, but he knows that to renounce citizenship would be toabandon the chance to create new modes of collective autonomy, inshort, to democratize democracy.

About the Author:

Étienne Balibar is Professor Emeritus of Moral and PoliticalPhilosophy at Université de Paris X, Nanterre

Review:

"Citizenship can only truly exist as insurrection. Democracy must be democratized. These are the daring propositions that Balibar, Marxisms least pious philosopher, nails to the door of neoliberalisms church."
Bruce Robbins, Columbia University

"Activists and specialists alike should read this book.......the book is a genuine contribution to radical thought."
Marx and Philosophy

"Balibar abjures any temptation to elementary or utopian prescriptions, instead offering a set of useful theoretical propositions for how democracy may be 'democratized' for the twenty-first century."
Political Studies Review
