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.

Prof. James H. Kettner wrote his dissertation on the subject defined by the book's title. He received his Ph.D. in history from Harvard in 1973. His doctoral thesis, "The Development of American Citizenship 1608-1870," was the 1975 winner of the Jamestown Prize. He was appointed to the University of California, Berkeley in 1973 and taught there until his death on June 2002 at 57. After graduation from Harvard (magna cum laude) in 1966, he won a Marshall Scholarship and took a second bachelor’s degree at the University of Sussex, England, with First Class Honors. Kettner returned to Harvard for graduate study in early American history under the direction of Professor Bernard Bailyn.
