Paradoxes of Civil Society

New Perspectives on Modern German and British History

«

"[This book] does an admirable job of making our understanding of civil society both more elaborated and more complex. Bringing together theoretical and historical perspectives, and insisting on the significance of the comparative, these essays provide an important resource for researchers, teachers and students."  ·  Catherine Hall,

"It is fitting to recognize ways in which civil society may produce conformity and inequality; it is also fitting to recognize how it allows for challenges to insularity and discrimination. This volume succeeds admirably in fostering an appropriately nuanced and balanced view."  ·  Albion

"The resurgence of interest in the concept of civil society among political scientists and social theorists has permeated the language of historians during the past decade – bringing with it the familiar dangers of inflation, confusing eclecticism, and misuse. This volume ... grounds the discussion in an impressive series of carefully delimited essays, contextualizing the category in rich and illuminating ways. Frank Trentmann's team eloquently brings theory and history together."  ·  Geoff Eley,
