Citizenship in Britain

Edinburgh University Press

This chapter begins with a discussion of nineteenth-century reforms relating to citizenship. It then describes how John Stuart Mill placed his faith in civic education through increased participation in practical public affairs. This is followed by a discussion of civic participation and pride in the individual's immediate locality. These are illustrated by English parochial administration and the shaping of Victorian cities.

Keywords:   citizenship, civic education, John Stuart Mill, participation, English parochial administration, Victorian cities
