About the Authors
  • The concept of citizenship is currently the focus of discussion by the media, politicians and academics, because of a generally perceived growth in public disaffection and apathy. Presenting the first comprehensive study of British citizenship, this book is comprised of surveys of political participation and voluntary activities, as well as the beliefs and values which support them. The authors provide a sophisticated discussion of the concept of citizenship, and the consequences of a lack of civic engagement in a modern democracy.

    • Citizenship is a very hot topic at the moment (apathy, low voter turnouts etc.)
    • This book presents the first comprehensive survey of citizenship in Britain, both of participations and beliefs
    • Seyd and Whiteley's work on UK political parties has been discussed frequently in the UK press
