Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This is a comprehensive view of the evolution of law and thinking about American Citizenship. It covers the British Calvin's Case that is fundamental to understanding later Supreme Court decisions such as US v. Wong. It explains how the Supreme Court's mistake in Dred Scott was a precipitating factor in the Civil War.

It's highly accessible to the non-specialist reader.
