‘Stimulating and very readable study’(Roland Sart The Journal of Modern History vol 87:02:2015)
‘Steven Soper has provided a compelling and fascinating study on the ways in which associational life, its limits and breadth, and its weaknesses and strengths informed national discourses on civic duty and citizenship.’(Aliza S. Wong American Historical Review, February 2015)
“Building a Civil Society offers a deeply researched and elegantly written history of associational life in Northeastern Italy in the second half of the nineteenth century. In a field dominated by cultural histories and textual analyses, this is the only study to provide a rich and empirically grounded micro-historical examination of the topic. The scholarship is impeccable, and it is presented in clear, jargon-free prose.”(Anthony L. Cardoza, Department of History, Loyola University of Chicago)
