Citizenship in Diverse Societies
by Kymlicka Will (Ed.); Norman Wayne (Ed.)

Abstract:
Most modern democracies contain significant minority groups whose language, religion, or ethnicity differs from those of the majority. In this book, leading scholars of multicultural issues examine questions related to multiculturalism and citizenship, specifically addressing the issue of whether it is possible in multicultural societies to accommodate these forms of diversity without weakening the bonds of common citizenship. The first chapter is introductory. The fourteen that follow are arranged in seven parts, each with two chapters, that address Citizenship Education and Religious Diversity; Political Participation and Group Representation; Immigration, Identity and Multiculturalism; Gender and Ethnic Diversity; Language Rights; The Rights of Indigenous Peoples; and Federalism and Nationalism.
