Australian Citizenship Law in Context
Posted: 28 May 2002
Australian Citizenship Law in Context by Kim Rubenstein is a new book published in May 2002 by Lawbook Company. Citizenship is the pivotal legal status in any nation-state. For Australia, the democratic, social and political framework, and its identity as a nation, is shaped by the notion of citizenship. Australian Citizenship Law in Context sheds light on citizenship law and practice in the broader context. It also provides the most up-to-date analysis available of the Australian Citizenship Act 1948 and its future direction, plus the first comprehensive listing and analysis of legislation that discriminates upon the basis of citizenship and residence.
