"In 'Revoking Citizenship', Ben Herzog reveals America's long history of stripping citizenship away from both naturalized immigrants and native-born citizens. Tracing this history from the nation's beginnings through the War on Terror, Herzog locates the sociological, political, legal, and historic meanings of revoking citizenship. Why, when, and with what justification do states take away citizenship from their subjects? Using the history and policies of revoking citizenship as a lens, the book examines, describes, and analyzes the complex relationships between citizenship, immigration, and national identity." -- from the publisher.
