Book Description
Citizenship in Historical Perspective
The volume looks at the past and the present of European citizenship, and, by implication, its future. The aim of the investigation is theoretical and practical. It is based on the conviction that knowledge is essential for decision making, political or otherwise; and that more knowledge is needed to make decisions about European citizenship. Attitudes towards such vital political and ethical issues as ‘citizenship’ are commonly based on general impressions and opinions, rather than on a critically-founded understanding. As historians and specialists in other social and human sciences, we believe it is our duty to contribute to the common patrimony of understanding and insight, so that informed citizens can make informed decisions.
