Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

"Civil Society" has been a global catchphrase since the end of the Cold War, and is a hot topic among academics and politicians. Understanding the evolution of this concept in the eighteenth and nineteenth centuries is vital to its study, whether in the context of history, sociology, politics, or international relations. This concise and incisive introduction to the transnational history of civil society is essential reading for students and scholars alike.

Synopsis:

A transnational history of civil society from the Enlightenment to the Great War.
