How should we understand the relationship between citizens and governments, and what are the obligations of citizens? In this substantially revised new edition of an influential text, John Horton challenges dominant theories by offering an 'associative' account focusing particularly on what it is to be a member of a political community.

Reviews of the previous edition: "perceptive and closely argued...this valuable book deserves a warm welcome" - Professor Lord Bhikhu Parekh, University of Westminster, UK "both an excellent introduction for advanced students and a useful challenge for those familiar with the field of political obligation" - Professor Richard Dagger, University of Richmond, US
