"Writing on citizenship tends to take the legal status of citizens for granted. But what happens when a government refuses to recognize its own citizens? Citizenship in Question uniquely probes how citizenship status has been challenged by various levels of government and the dire consequences that can ensue. Presenting a great deal of new and little-known material, this volume is the first of its kind." — Leti Volpp, Robert D. and Leslie Kay Raven Professor of Law in Access to Justice, University of California, Berkeley
"By focusing on the difficulties citizens can face in proving that they are, in fact, citizens, as well as the frightening consequences that flow from these difficulties, the contributors to this volume offer a disturbing analysis of the precariousness of modern citizenship. Citizenship in Question is one of the most original and important books on citizenship in years." — Matthew J. Gibney, author of, The Ethics and Politics of Asylum: Liberal Democracy and the Response to Refugees
