Abstract

Presented here is the rough draft of the introduction and first chapter of a book tentatively entitled. Taking American Citizenship Seriously and the Recovery of the Fourteenth Amendment. In the introduction, I introduce the purpose and organization of the work. In the first chapter, "A Coherent and Conservative Measure," I argue that the drafters and supporters of the Amendment had a coherent understanding of the measure, and understood it as a means to secure principles that were old, that is, fundamental to free government and long recognized in the spirit if not letter of the American Declaration of Independence and Constitution.
