About this book

Citizenship in an Enlarging Europe considers the impact of economic, political and social transformation in Central and Eastern Europe in the context of EU enlargement. The author uses the lens of gender to examine the processes of democratization, marketization and nationalism.

Reviews

'Einhorn, one of the most accomplished experts on women in Eastern Europe, has written a comprehensive and excellent overview of this subject...this book will serve as a guide to the politics of citizenship and feminism in Eastern Europe for some years to come.' - European Journal of Women's Studies

'...the book is extremely well written, well informed and cogently argued. Einhorn incisively reviews and analyses an extraordinary range of literature, supporting arguments with a remarkable breadth of empirical and statistical analysis. Her impressive comparative ability ensures that she 'hops' around Central and Eastern Europe without sacrificing important empirical detail.' - International Feminist Journal of Politics

'Barbara Einhorn has written an important and timely contribution to our understanding of the newly enlarged Europe. Most crucially, she argues for a recognition of the gendered complexities of the idea of citizenship. The book is essential reading for anyone who values the furtherance of equality between all Europeans.' - Mary Evans, Professor of Women's Studies, University of Kent at Canterbury, UK

'Einhorn is consistently thorough, thoughtful and accessible. In this vital and timely book, she synthesizes cutting-edge theory and cross-disciplinary research to deliver a compelling argument for gender equitable citizenship in an enlarging Europe. A uniquely valuable resource for students, scholars and practitioners as well.' - V. Spike Peterson, Professor, Department of Political Science, University of Arizona, USA

'Barbara Einhorn has done it again! All of her many fans who have been awaiting eagerly a sequel to her much-heralded Cinderella Goes to Market will be rewarded by reading this new richly detailed, cogently analyzed comparative study of what has happened to women in Eastern Europe in the last decade. This book is a must for all of us trying to make feminist sense of globalized economics and tenuous democratization - and women's own activist responses to both.' - Cynthia Enloe, Research Professor, Clark University, USA
