Citizenship and Social Class

Availability: Ready to download

Over forty years after it first appeared, T.H. Marshall's seminal essay on citizenship and social class in postwar Britain has acquired the status of a classic. His lucid analysis of the principal elements of citizenship -- namely, the possession of civil, political and social rights -- is as relevant today as it was when it first appeared. It is reissued here with a compl Over forty years after it first appeared, T.H. Marshall's seminal essay on citizenship and social class in postwar Britain has acquired the status of a classic. His lucid analysis of the principal elements of citizenship -- namely, the possession of civil, political and social rights -- is as relevant today as it was when it first appeared. It is reissued here with a complementary monography by Tom Bottomore in which the meaning of citizenship is re-examined, in very different historical circumstances. In asking how far the prospects for class equality have been realised, Bottomore continues the discussion in a context that encompasses the restoration of civil and political rights in Eastern Europe, problems of welfare capitalism, citizenship and the nation state and the broader issues of equality and democratic institutions.

    Brilliant and pathbreaking (at the time of its authorship) but also dated and flawed. Isin and Wood do a decent job of succinctly summarizing salient criticisms in Chapter 2 of Citizenship and Identity. Marshall's work formed the germ of many subsequent, powerful theoretical critiques (e.g., those of Nancy Fraser, Linda Gordon, Evelyn Nakano Glenn). Indispensable to anyone interested in social policy and citizenship, inter alia. Brilliant and pathbreaking (at the time of its authorship) but also dated and flawed.

    This book is weird. It is half the 50 page essay he wrote with the same title and half another, not nearly as good or relevant, essay by Tom Bottomore. That essay (also available in other books), is definitely a must-read for anyone studying citizenship (of any variety), since it has underlain all social scientific engagement with the topic since at least the early 1990s and really since it was written in 1950.
