Citizenship and Community explores the links among liberalism, social democracy and nationalism within the framework of traditional republican ideals of "civic virtue" and active citizenship. It examines various "currents of radicalism" in Britain and Ireland, from Victorian advanced liberals to Irish and Welsh socialists in the 1920s. The book's strong comparative emphasis focuses attention on the regions of Britain, revealing how different forms of collective identity interacted in popular attitudes to political and social debates.
