  • Citizenship between Empire and Nationby Frederick Cooper

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 45.00

    As the French public debates its present diversity and its colonial past, few remember that between 1946 and 1960 the inhabitants of French colonies possessed the rights of French citizens. Moreover, they did not have to conform to the French civil code that regulated marriage and inheritance. One could, in principle, be a citizen and different too.... more...

  • The Origins of Citizenship in Ancient Athensby Philip Brook Manville

    Princeton University Press 2014; US$ 35.00

    In this unusual synthesis of political and socio-economic history, Philip Manville demonstrates that citizenship for the Athenians was not merely a legal construct but rather a complex concept that was both an institution and a mode of social behavior.

  • Women and the Voteby Jad Adams

    Oxford University Press 2014; US$ 48.99

    Before 1893 no woman anywhere in the world had the vote in a national election.

The first genuinely global history of women and the vote, it takes the story of women in... more...
