"Balanced, erudite, and accessible."--Library Journal
"An appealing project, touching on important aspects of present-day political debate while exploiting a rich historical background. Riesenberg offers nothing short of a survey of Western thought concerning citizenship, from Greek antiquity to 1789. The use of ancient sources is impressive, as is the selection of medieval and early modern European references."--Franklin L. Ford, Harvard University
