True Faith and Allegiance:
Immigration and American Civic Nationalism
Noah Pickus

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]


"This book will be an important and original contribution to America's ongoing debate over immigration. It lays claim to some much-needed middle ground in a policy domain that is far too polarized. Ranging over political theory, law, and history, Noah Pickus wades into the most pressing public policy debates of our era. He manages to produce a work of policy analysis and political theory at the same time. The topic of citizenship has called out for such a treatment. Now it has one."--Peter Skerry, Boston College and the Brookings Institution, author of Counting on the Census? Race, Group, Identity, and the Evasion of Politics

"Noah Pickus offers a provocative account of American nationalism and the politics of immigrant incorporation. Claiming a centrist tradition that defies the familiar extremes on this issue, True Faith and Allegiance offers a sophisticated set of arguments that are sure to spark debate among scholars and political activists. It also represents an effective blending of political theory and policy analysis."--Daniel Tichenor, Rutgers University, author of Dividing Lines: The Politics of Immigration Control in America
