Citizenship and social movements remain key areas of interest for a wide range of social scientists. Angharad Beckett reinterprets current understandings of citizenship and social movements, illuminating important strengths and weaknesses in a number of key theories through a focus on the nature of the disability movement in the UK. In offering this substantial empirical study, Citizenship and Vulnerability draws on the work of theorists such as Berlin, Habermas and Mouffe, Ellison's ideas about proactive and defensive engagement and Turner's 'sociology of the body', proposing a new model of 'active' citizenship that rests upon an understanding of 'vulnerable personhood'.
