About the Author

Engin F. Isin holds a Chair in Citizenship and is Professor of Politics in Politics and International Studies (POLIS) at the Faculty of Social Sciences, The Open University, Milton Keynes, UK. He was director (2007-2009) of the Centre for Citizenship, Identities and Governance (UK) and is the author of Cities Without Citizens (1992), Citizenship and Identity with Patricia Wood (1999) and Being Political (2002).


Isin provides a trenchant and imaginative reading of proliferating forms of political action and engagement-mostly progressive, sometimes reactionary-which traverse and subvert the nation-state. Combining a diverse set of case studies with rich interpretive reflection, the book examines various boundary-bending acts of citizenship in order to highlight a vital new frontier in the development of the contemporary political subject. * Linda Bosniak, Distinguished Professor of Law, Rutgers University School of Law, USA *
Isin passionately embraces the paradoxes of citizenship in order to problematize its frontiers: physical, territorial, conceptual, and affective. Apart from bringing to the fore, mapping, interpreting, and contextualizing a myriad of heterogeneous acts that traverse these frontiers, he magnificently performs the reflexive intellectual act of creating the field in which a new figure of political subjectivity, citizens without frontiers, is empowered. Crucially, this is reflected both in the content and in the truly innovative form of his writing. * Yannis Stavrakakis, School of Political Science, Aristotle University of Thessaloniki, Greece *
Engin Isin's Citizens Without Frontiers provides a politically and intellectually powerful and engaging narrative of activist citizens who are disregarding the imperatives of the nation and frontiers on behalf of alliances often overlooked by contemporary mainstream and left scholarship alike. * Jacqueline Stevens, Professor, Northwestern University, USA *
