In "Gender and Citizenship in Transition," Barbara Hobson has collected a group of essays that focus on the shifting definition and importance of citizenship. Specifically, the authors, writing from a wide range of backgrounds and perspectives, examine the impact of traditional citizenship upon gender, gender equality, and feminist theorizing. The essays of the volume speak to the great complexity of these issues by confronting the meaning of gender difference in varied social contexts. The result is a unique and comprehensive re-examination and recombination of two of the burgeoning areas of academia: citizenship and feminism.
