We will briefly describe and explain the purpose of the book. We will explain that this book brings together respected international academics and practitioners from citizenship and drama to debate those issues, to share their experiences of current good practice and to plan a way forward for future co-operation. We will elaborate the nature of citizenship and drama and how they overlap and how they are distinct with references to goals, traditions, controversial issues and highlight key principles for teaching, learning and assessing. We will explain the ways in which the book may be read and used as a springboard for action. This will include a detailed outline of what is contained within the book. We explain the nature and purpose of section 1. There will be a rationale for section 2 in which we explain the selection of country case studies on the basis of variety of contexts, traditions and perspectives. We will provide an explanation about the interactive nature of section 3, Chapters 13–18 (in which citizenship experts provide a challenge to drama specialists to develop particular types of work). We will provide a discussion about and justification for the framework of Chapter 20, the final substantive section of the book, in which the principal areas of collaborative thinking and practice are briefly re-stated and explored and recommendations are made.
