Rights and virtues: Political essays on citizenship and social justice
Turner, B. (2008). Rights and virtues: Political essays on citizenship and social justice. United Kingdom: The Bardwell Press.
Bryan Turner's writing on citizenship and human rights has placed him at the forefront of sociological research in this area. Over the last three decades his essays and other contributions have led to a fundamental reconsideration of the debate about individual and social rights in social theory. His work compares in its breath and scope with that of his classical forebears, Weber and Durkheim. It offers a contemporary pertinence to questions that go to the heart of the matter, and grasps the fundamental problematics of citizenship and human rights in a globalised and post-Cold War world
