Summary
"The Supreme Court{u2019}s rejection of Black citizenship in the Dred Scott decision was among the first and most notorious examples of citizenship stripping. Over the last two centuries, the US government has revoked citizenship to cast out its unwanted, suppress dissent, and deny civil rights to all considered 'un-American' whether due to their race, ethnicity, marriage partner, or beliefs. Frost exposes a hidden history of discrimination and xenophobia that continues to this day. Amanda Frost explores how the United States' concept of citizenship and the rights of citizens has evolved, and especially how it has been challenged"--Adapted from book jacket
