Summary
  • This study considers the impact of economic, political and social transformation in Central and Eastern Europe in the context of EU enlargement. Using the lens of gender, this book examines the processes of democratization, marketization and nationalism. This new edition includes a new preface and updates statistics throughout.
  • '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

Summary expansion
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. In a lively and engaging narrative, Barbara Einhorn uses gender as the lens through which to examine the processes of democratization, marketization and newly emergent nationalism, revealing the centrality of gender to these processes and the ways in which rigid codes of masculinity and femininity limit individuals' choices. Including an examination of mainstream politics versus the promotion of civil society as routes to empowerment and participation, this study highlights the growing public-private divide in the region, pinpointing the negative influences of the neo-liberal market model and its gendered media representations. With great clarity, Einhorn reveals the relevance of fully active citizenship within a vibrant civil society as a measure of democracy and gender equitable societies. Now available in paperback, this new edition includes a substantial new introduction, which revisits the central issues regarding citizenship in the European Union after the second round of enlargement in 2007 (after the hardback edition was published). In particular it address the role of nationalism, gender mainstreaming policies, and migration, making specific reference to Bulgaria and Romania
