"This is an excellent book. It would not be possible for any good university course dealing with citizenship to omit this book from those items on the reading list marked 'essential'...The sharpness of thought shown in this book will make it easier to avoid the pitfalls and encourage people to reach for something that is coherent and meaningful...Superlatives are overused, but this book is a classic." Jan Davies, University of York
