This book explores the many different strands in the language of civil society from the sixteenth to the twentieth centuries. Through a series of case-studies it investigates the applicability of the term to a wide range of historical settings. The contributors show how past understandings of the term were often very different from (even in some respects the exact opposite of) those held today.

About the Author:

Jose Harris is a Professor of Modern History, St Catherine's College, Oxford.

Review:

...required reading...The question of how the individual engages with the state...remains a fertile one, enriched here by a mix of periods, cultures, and approaches. This pluralism is an enlightened, active example of 'civil society', and we are indebted to the voluntary association of the contributors. English Historical Review Two cheers, then, for an interesting collection of studies that demonstrates the range and fascination involved in the study of civil society. * Michael Bentley, The English Historical Review *
