A scholarly inquiry into the origins of French and German notions of nationhood and citizenship, and a work of historical and topical concern. At a time of mass immigration and growing chauvinism, this sociological-historical study of contrasting laws and practices regarding naturalization is particularly valuable. Learned, shrewd and demanding.
