about

This book reveals how the national idea in nineteenth century Greece helped women to develop an alternate vision of female politics, history, and citizenship. Through a discussion of fascinating materials, reflecting contemporary beliefs and ideas, this innovative study reveals how notions of citizenship were determined and explores the long process through which ideas and beliefs shaped both societies and individual identities.
