Civism

Cultivating Citizenship in European History

Thomas L. Dynneson

This book explores the relationship between citizenship and civism through a general survey of European history. It begins with an exploration of the dynamics of citizenship and civism in the formative Neolithic and classical societies, followed by an exploration of the middle ages, renaissance, reformation, and the enlightenment. The latter half of the book focuses on the rise of the modern nation-state following the French Revolution. The chapters spanning the eighteenth, nineteenth, and twentieth centuries focus on the development of citizenship and civism in Britain, France, Germany, and Russia.
