True Faith and Allegiance: Immigration and American Civic Nationalism

True Faith and Allegiance: Immigration and American Civic Nationalism

Jonathan M. Hansen, Senior Lecturer on Social Studies at Harvard University, reviews True Faith and Allegiance: Immigration and American Civic Nationalism. The book is about how liberal states define national identity and the importance that shared characteristics hold in the creation of that national identity. The author writes that in theory, liberal states are exclusive only to “liberals,” but by judging the extent of the liberal characteristics of others would render the state “culture blind.” Pickus, Hansen explains, continues his discussion with an analysis of the juxtaposition of nationalism and liberalism.
