Overview

A dozen contributors add essays to two of British history's most flourishing sub-specialties—urban history and the history of education—in honor of the 50th anniversary of Reeder's association with the U. of Leicester. Chapters by senior figures in economic, social, cultural, and educational history address the changing nature of individualism and public service in the 19th and 20th centuries. They explore how the balance between the life of the private citizen and the need to play an active role in the wider community shifted to make a new civil society based on associational life and the agencies of the democratic state.
