The Disinherited Society
Liverpool University Press

This introductory chapter discusses the theme of this volume which is about urban society and social responsibility in Liverpool, England in the twentieth century. This volume is based on the author's own observation about the struggle to achieve a satisfactory relationship between each and every one of us and the society of which we are contributory members. It considers a novel concept of citizenship as a two-way relationship between the individual and society, which holds that the universal right to enjoy the benefits of membership to the community must be matched by the opportunity to share in the responsibility for the management of the affairs of that community.

Keywords:   urban society, social responsibility, Liverpool, England, citizenship, individual, society, community
