This book reveals the potential of geography to engage with citizenship. It provides:

  • theoretical signposts in the form of short, digestible explanations for key ideas such as racism, values, identity, community and social exclusion

  • a number of inset activities 'for further thinking'

  • a critique of the discipline and the pitfalls to avoid in teaching citizenship through geography

  • practical teaching suggestions.

All the contributions to this valuable book point to the capacity of geography to engage with citizenship, values, education and people - environment decision-making, on scales that range from the local to the global. It offers positive and direct ways to become involved in the thinking that must underpin any worthwhile citizenship education, for all experienced teachers, student teachers, heads of department, curriculum managers, principals and policy-makers.

'Lambert and Machon's [book] is a timely and considered contribution...the book provides chapters setting the background to citizenship in geography education from a stimulating range of different viewpoints...[it] is an essential read for those at the intersection of citizenship and geography in secondary schools.' - Angus Willson, The Development Education Journal
