'...this book is designed as a core text; but it will be useful not just to
teachers and students but also to social policy practitioners and
politicians because the contested and complex concept of citizenship now
informs debate on all manner of social policy issues, as this book amply
shows.' - Citizen's Income Newsletter
"A second edition of this excellent book is most welcome. Dwyer's understanding of social citizenship is second to none and this new edition provides an updated discussion and assessment of all the practical and theoretical issues that students need to know about this important area of study." Nick Ellison, University of Leeds
