Ruth Lister argues that poverty excludes millions from the full rights of citizenship, and proposes a charter of social citizenship which can bridge the gap between common and self interest.

The Exclusive Society shows how in civil life, in politics and in society we must become one nation again. That means including the poor, and on the basis of new values which take their cue from the poor. This is the agenda for the 1990s’ Revd Dr John Vincent (former President of the Methodist Conference)

On every page of Ruth Lister’s The Exclusive Society you can feel that an original mind is working to recast the political agenda of the 1990s in the new language of citizenship’ Michael Ignatieff, Observer
