In this prize-winning book, a leading scholar of constitutional law shows how American law has both reflected and defined what it means to be American, to ""belong to America"". Kenneth L. Karst shows that the ideal of equal citizenship has long been a vital part of the culture of the American public life, and tells a powerful story of how the idea of equality has developed in America, providing courtroom examples that range from the treatment of American Indians to the status of Christianity.;Karst explores the psychological impact of discrimination on those who have been its victims, those who have been told by society that they do not belong; and he argues that the principle of equal citizenship can and should guide the nation's future just as it has shared its past.;The book was winner of the 1990 James A. Rawley Prize awarded by the Organization of American Historians for the best book dealing with race relations in the United States and also winner of a 1990 American Bar Association Certificate of Merit awarded by the Gavel Awards Committee for a noteworthy contribution to public understanding of the American system of law and justice.
