From the Bookshelves: Review of Ben Herzog, Revoking Citizenship: Expatriation in America from the Colonial Era to the War on Terror

Revoking citizenship

In this review, Leticia Saucedo, former ImmigrationProf blogger, reviews Ben Herzog, Revoking Citizenship:  Expatriation in America from the Colonial Era to the War on Terror (NYU Press 2015).  (The book has previously been previewed on this blog.).  She concludes that

Herzog's contribution to the growing debate over membership in our polity is important for its reminder that citizenship has historically been contingent in the United States, despite the claims to constitutional status that citizenship might invoke. At 139 pages (not including notes), it is a short read that will induce the reader to rethink the nature of citizenship in our democracy.
