Abstract:

"The management of the social body through discourses of health became the principal means of negotiating new questions of citizenship and the Condition of England. The Citizen's Body traces the construction of citizenship through the figure of the healthy body, in parliamentary debates on the franchise, in sanitary and housing publications, and in novels. The rhetoric of the healthy body as the ground of civic participation permeated the discourse of the novel, as shown in the work of Dickens, Oliphant, Disraeli, Eliot, and Gaskell."--BOOK JACKET.
