Reviews

“This is a wonderful book ... a very welcome addition to current discussions of political anthropology.” • Theodoros Rakopoulos, University of Oslo

Description

The idea of citizenship is formed through a dynamic and flexible set of relationships that go beyond a sequence of formal rights and duties. It is recurring in everyday social contexts—in practices that play out in the real world, in the everyday exercises or refusals of citizenship rights, in the purposeful defiance of norms, and in the tactical evasions of duties. This book explores the troubled relationship between a state and its citizens across four different kinds of social spaces in Limassol, Cyprus. Tactical Citizenships is a testament to the tenacity and resourcefulness of marginalized individuals in directing their relations with the state.

Theodoros Kouros is a Lecturer at the Department of Communication and Internet Studies, Cyprus University of Technology. He has conducted long-term ethnographic research on the islands of Lesbos and Samos (Greece), along the Greek-Albanian border (Epirus, Gjirokastër and Korçë) and in Limassol, Cyprus.
