Redefining Citizenship in Australia, Canada, and Aotearoa New Zealand
Author: Dr Jatinder Mann, Assistant Professor of the Department of History
Adopting a political and legal perspective, this book undertakes a transnational study that examines the demise of Britishness as a defining feature of the conceptualisation of citizenship in Australia, Canada and Aotearoa New Zealand, and the impact that this historic shift has had on Indigenous and other ethnic groups in these states. During the 1950s and 1970s, an ethnically-based citizenship was transformed into a civic-based one (one based on rights and responsibilities).
This book will be useful for history and politics courses, as well as specialised courses on citizenship and Indigenous studies.
