Citoyenneté à la française

Citizenship, French Style

Troughs of ink are regularly spent in tackling the subject of citizenship. This book traces how well the term translates, for those who it represents, the feeling of dependence experienced by the citizen actor with regard to his or her co-citizens and the will to take on what unites them. These different perceptions design different concepts of citizenship. Opposing representations according to two theoretical models of community involvement and isolationism thus give birth to a "tension" characteristic of French style citizenship.
