Summary This engaging text examines the social impact of globalization in creating an identifiable sense of community and security. Particular attention is paid to how neo-liberal global agendas are re-shaping the relationship between state and citizen and how increased corporatisation is making us re-think the concept of political obligation. The book examines critically the fragility of democratic politics, especially the closure of political participation and experience and how the decline of one form of politics is providing opportunities for the formation of new political spaces. The concept of governance is explored and the prospects of a rejuvenated public sphere, premised on a re-evaluation of citizenship and political engagement, are discussed.
