Citizenship and Community: Liberals, Radicals, and Collective Identities in the British Isles, 1865-1931by Eugenio Biagini
Synopses & Reviews
In 1883 the radical journalist W. E. Adams described community self-government as 'the essence of all political liberalism that is worthy of the name'. This collaborative volume of essays enlarges upon Adams' thesis, applying it to the study of various 'currents of radicalism' in Britain and Ireland, ranging from Victorian 'advanced' Liberals to Irish and Welsh socialists in the 1920s. Citizenship and community explores the links between liberalism, social democracy and nationalism within the framework of the classical republican ideals of 'civic virtue' and active citizenship. Its strong comparative emphasis breaks down conventional views of the state, and focuses attention on the regions of Britain, revealing how different forms of collective identity interacted in popular attitudes to political and social debates at a national level.
