9780521761888: Law and the Borders of Belonging in the Long Nineteenth Century United States (New Histories of American Law)

For more than a generation, historians and legal scholars have documented inequalities at the heart of American law and daily life and exposed inconsistencies in the generic category of "American citizenship." Welke draws on that wealth of historical, legal, and theoretical scholarship to offer a new paradigm of liberal selfhood and citizenship from the founding of the United States through the 1920s. Law and the Borders of Belonging questions understanding this period through a progressive narrative of expanding rights, revealing that it was characterized instead by a sustained commitment to borders of belonging of liberal selfhood, citizenship, and nation in which able white men's privilege depended on the subject status of disabled persons, racialized others, and women. Welke's conclusions pose challenging questions about the modern liberal democratic state that extend well beyond the temporal and geographic boundaries of the long nineteenth century United States.

Book Description:

Law and the Borders of Belonging offers a new paradigm of liberal selfhood and citizenship from the founding of the United States through the 1920s. Her research characterizes this period as a time of "borders of belonging" in which able white men's privilege depended on the subject status of disabled persons, racialized others, and women.
