"Citizens Without Frontiers." Engin F. Isin. Bloomsbury. December 2012. --- States define who their citizens are and exert control over their life and movements. But how does such power persist in a global world where people, ideas, and products constantly cross the borders of what the states see as their sovereign territory? Engin F. Isin seeks to offer a new way of thinking about citizenship in Citizens Without Frontiers, developing a new image of citizenship using the connectedness principle. Including case studies from Wikileaks and the Gaza flotilla to China’s virtual world and Darfur, this is an excellent resource for those seeking a new vocabulary in citizenship studies, concludes Zalfa Feghali.
