Civic Myths: A Law and Literature Approach to Citizenship

My proposed book uses literary and legal analysis to illuminate complemetary and conflicting "civic myths," compelling stories that reflect and help to shape attitudes toward citizenship. I have chapters on "'The Scarlet Letter,' the Dissenting Citizen, and Civil Society"; "'The Man Without a Country,' the Patriotic Citizen, and Civil Liberties"; "'Adventures of Huckleberry Finn,' the Independent Citizen, and Civil Rights"; and "'China Men,' the Ethnic Citizen, and Civility."
