Editorial Reviews

Review

"A wonderful, sophisticated, and comprehensive analysis of an extremely important yet neglected set of landmark cases. Sparrow brings to life the political debates triggered by the conquests of 1898 and shows how considerations of race, religion, and political greatness transformed both constitutional understandings and the meaning of American nationhood. . . . A major contribution." -- Howard Gillman

From the Back Cover

"A wonderful, sophisticated, and comprehensive analysis of an extremely important yet neglected set of landmark cases. Sparrow brings to life the political debates triggered by the conquests of 1898 and shows how considerations of race, religion, and political greatness transformed both constitutional understandings and the meaning of American nationhood. . . . A major contribution."--Howard Gillman, author of The Constitution Besieged: The Rise and Demise of Lochner Era Police Powers Jurisprudence

"A fascinating discussion of the judicial proceedings and constitutional debates surrounding these cases. An effortless read, it is also a welcome addition to the study of American imperialism."--Louis A. Perez, Jr., author of On Becoming Cuban: Identity, Nationality, and Culture

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
A great little book that had a story to tell. An important footnote in American history that is seldom addressed. It is a sad commentary on how the Supreme Court was influenced by the politics of era. The unfinished political business that is present today in dealing with America's territories from Guam to the Virgin Islands can be traced to the imperialist dogma of the U.S. Court and 20 some years of the so called "insular cases." I just wish Sparrow had an ending chapter of "what next."

Through the insular case the non valid, non equal us citizen its show perfect. Its present how business and the empire philosophy establish the way the new territory will be conducted.
