9780300118483: Citizenship: The Rise and Fall of a Modern Concept

In this book Andreas Fahrmeir provides a much-needed historical perspective on contemporary debates about immigration and the nature of citizenship. By tracing the origins of citizenship in four Western countries (Britain, France, Germany, and the United States) from c.1700 to the present, he convincingly demonstrates the contingency and changeability of the concept.

The emergence of these modern nation-states brought a deceptively simple opposition of citizen” versus alien,” in contrast to the complex relationships between individuals and communities in ancien régime societies, Fahrmeir argues. He charts the demise of traditional ways of distinguishing insiders from outsiders; discusses the relation of political participation, economic privileges, and social rights to legal citizenship; and considers whether state citizenship remains a relevant concept in the circumstances of today.

About the Author:

Andreas Fahrmeir is professor of nineteenth-century history, Johann Wolfgang Goethe Universität, Frankfurt. He is the author of numerous articles and books, including Citizens and Aliens: Foreigners and the Law in Britain and the German States, 1789–1870 and the forthcoming Revolution–Reform–Revolution.

Review:

"Andreas Fahrmeir's ambitious book offers a much needed review of the organization of citizenship from the ancien regime to contemporary trends in France, Germany, Britain, and the United States."—Dorith Geva, The International History Review (Dorith Geva The International History Review 2009-03-01)
