This book examines issues of citizenship, citizenship education, and social change in China, exploring the complexity of interactions among global forces, the nation-state, local governments, schools, and individuals - including students - in selecting and identifying with elements of citizenship and citizenship education in a multileveled polity. It also provides a clear, detailed guide to studies on China, discussing the country's responses to global challenges and social transitions for over a century - from its military defeats by foreign powers in the 1840s to its rise as a world power in the early 21st century - on its path toward reviving the nation and making a modern Chinese citizenry. Citizenship and Citizenship Education in a Global Age is accessible to readers in the fields of sociology, globalization, citizenship studies, comparative education, and China's development.

"This is a work of breathtaking scholarship on China and its relationship to citizenship and citizenship education. Wing-Wah Law has combined meticulous historical analysis with innovative ideas about multilevel-multidimensional citizenship. His model synthesizing the continued importance of the nation-state, the new role of cities, and the significance of staging international events take the analysis far beyond that of China. A superb addition to the field of citizenship education in the complex politics of a globalized world." (Professor Lynn Davies, Centre for International Education and Research, School of Education, University of Birmingham, United Kingdom) "This is a must-read book for anyone interested in the latest developments of citizenship and citizenship education in China and how the development of citizenship reflects social change. The book is both informative and insightful, and is a significant contribution to the literature of globalization, citizenship, and citizenship education. Based on over a decade of scholarly work, the book carefully tracks why and how the state plays a strong role in shaping citizenship education to meet the current and future societal requirements and prudently analyzes particular incidents, such as the 2008 Beijing Olympic Games, to show how the state uses globalization opportunities to shape a civilized citizenry." (Professor Wing-On Lee, President of the World Council of Comparative Education Societies; and Dean of Research, National Institute of Education, Singapore) "What amazes me most about this book is its unique and comprehensive combination of a meticulous analysis of historical development of citizenship and citizenship education in the Chinese context, convincing findings generated from solid empirical evidence, the thoughtful and useful theoretical framework built upon the author's reflections on and scholarship in the field over decades, and enlightening conclusions illuminating new ways for the studies of citizenship and citizenship education in the future." (Jun Li, Asia Pacific Journal of Education 33.1, 2014)
