Samenvatting Genealogies of Citizenship is a remarkable rethinking of human rights and social justice. As global governance is increasingly driven by market fundamentalism, growing numbers of citizens have become socially excluded and internally stateless.
Margaret Somers | openDemocracy
Against this movement to organize society exclusively by market principles, Margaret Somers argues that socially inclusive democratic rights must be counter-balanced by the powers of a social state, a robust public sphere and a relationally-sturdy civil society. Through epistemologies of history and naturalism, contested narratives of social capital, and Hurricane Katrina's racial apartheid, she warns that the growing authority of the market is distorting the non-contractualism of citizenship; rights, inclusion and moral worth are increasingly dependent on contractual market value.
In this pathbreaking work, Somers advances an innovative view of rights as public goods rooted in an alliance of public power, political membership, and social practices of equal moral recognition - the right to have rights.

Recensie s 'Margaret Somers has an astonishing variety of disciplinary competences and constantly poses new questions and working on parallel fields in order to build a network of concepts and arguments. The strong connection that she establishes between conceptual analysis and a practical commitment to the emergence of new democratic forms and republican citizenship is an essential aspect of the creative character of her work.
Citizenship is not only a boundary-marker between polities; the loss of 'the right to have rights' does not only mark the refugee, the asylum seeker and the undocumented worker, it also stigmatizes the others within societies by social exclusion.
Focusing on the events surrounding Hurricane Katrina, Somers shows how 'statelessness' became the condition of citizens of the USA at the beginning of the twenty-first century. To retrieve 'the right to have rights' for all means going beyond the 'romance of the market' and 'reviling the state'. Seyla Benhabib, Yale University 'Genealogies of Citizenship might well provide the definitive sociological and political critique of the era of market fundamentalism.
Building on the insights of Karl Polanyi, T. Marshall, and Hannah Arendt, Margaret Somers demonstrates that civil society rests on the 'right to have rights'. But this right has been swept away by three decades of market-dominated discourse and policies.

Somers brilliantly shows how Hurricane Katrina's devastating impact on New Orleans' African American community was the culmination of this dynamic. Somers provides, at once, an incisive analytic for approaching the internal exclusions of liberal democratic societies, a sophisticated meditation on the career and meanings of the citizenship concept in social theory, and an eloquent indictment of a 'market fundamentalism' which, she shows, ultimately subverts citizenship's highest aspirations.
The originality and ambition of her commitment to rebuilding social theory grows from the most careful and searching of contextual knowledge.
Likewise, she challenges historians of citizenship, democracy, and political economy to think their projects anew. Individually the chapters are a dazzling series of interventions; together they compose an extraordinary corpus. She argues that the rise of the ideology of market fundamentalism is an assault on democratic rights. Nor is the assault a mere abstraction. Political ideas are embedded in legal practices and economic and social relations.
Market fundamentalism is thus a profound threat to democratic possibilities. This is political, economic and cultural sociology and social theory at its best.

AbeBooks Bookseller Since: November 16, Items related to Genealogies of Citizenship: Markets, Statelessness, Somers applies a similarly devastating analysis to "civil society". Genealogies of Citizenship is a book whose tone shifts between a relatively broadly conceived empirical analysis, a complex and subtle intellectual history of thinking about the relationship between individuals, markets, polities and society from Hobbes to the present which this review cannot do justice to, and normative arguments.
Genealogies of Citizenship
I suspect that objections could and will be raised at all three levels. The argument linking Katrina to market fundamentalism and thus interpreting it not as a failure but as a success of government could have been set out more fully - particularly as Somers admits that the legacy of slavery, personal incompetence, racism and political structures did play a substantial role as events unfolded. Moreover, it would have been nice to know how widespread the language of market fundamentalism which delegitimized the claims of Katrina's victims actually was, given that the official response seems to have widely been seen as a failure, not a success.
I would place T. Marshall's argument on citizenship the renaissance of his lectures in recent scholarly discourse is a starting point for Somers's intellectual history of citizenship concepts in a different framework and consider it more concerned with market relations than Somers appears to do. One of the guiding questions in his "citizenship" lecture [ 1 ], incidentally dedicated to the memory of a free-market economist, was, after all, how extensive rights-based citizenship could be combined with labour- market efficiency. Finally, Somers's analysis does not extend very much to the driving forces behind the emasculation of citizenship rights - one possible avenue for analysis would be to enquire how and why "states" as organisations and members of governing elites as individuals have come to assume that the state can keep order, wage wars, collect taxes, support the creation of wealth and the pursuit of power without a strong and inclusive vision of citizenship rights.
These quibbles are, however, clearly not the point. Somers has provided us with a broad, multi-faceted and immensely inspiring provocative account of modern "western" societies' problems in combining citizenship rights and market principles which should be required reading not just for those of us interested in such questions, but for anyone who intends to use the words "social capital" or "civil society" in future.
