Papers on the Social Sciences: Their Relations in Theory and in Teaching, Third Series

SIGNED by T.H. Marshall on ffep. The lack of an inscription and the editorial-type pencil notes in his section suggest this might have been Marshall's own copy.

Condition: Hardcover; no dust jacket, cover boards have minor general wear, upper spine starting to tear along crease, minor bumping/rubbing to corners. Some light foxing to endpapers, and pencil notes on the contents page as well as in Marshall's chapter on "The Nature of Class Conflict" pages 97-111. The binding is creased at page 97, and the pencil marks appear to be editorial, even typographic in nature, and there is a separate slip of paper that states in red pencil the section is from chapter three of Marshall's Citizenship and Social Class. Otherwise the interior is clean, and the binding is secure.

wiki: "Thomas Humphrey Marshall (19 December 1893 – 29 November 1981) was an English sociologist who is best known for his essay "Citizenship and Social Class," a key work on citizenship that introduced the idea that full citizenship includes civil, political, and social citizenship. / Marshall worked for UNESCO as the head of the Social Science Department from 1956 to 1960, possibly contributing to the United Nations International Covenant on Economic, Social and Cultural Rights, which was drafted in 1954, but not ratified until 1966. Citizenship and Social Class: T.H. Marshall wrote a seminal essay on citizenship– which became his most famous work– titled "Citizenship and Social Class." This was published in 1950 and was based on a lecture given the previous year. British citizenship was originally bestowed upon those of a higher status group with their own civil, political, and social privileges. Yet Marshall argued that, with the expansion of capitalism, a "new kind of citizenship slowly pulled apart the package of privileges hitherto enjoyed exclusively by the well-born." He analysed the development of citizenship as a development of civil, then political, then social rights."
