This chapter presents a concise digest of the meanings of five general concepts in private international law: national, citizen, resident, foreigner, and subject. Like Raymond Williams’ Keywords, it sketches the etymology, translations, development, and shades of meaning of each term. This collection defines terms used in the chapters to follow, and is meant to enable more rigorous use of these terms in future studies of mixed societies.
