Edgar Hoover to an internment camp in California, where he directly confronts the consequences of America’s wartime policies. Kermit Roosevelt combines the momentum of a top-notch legal thriller with a thoughtful examination of one of the worst civil rights violations in US history in this long-awaited follow-up to In the Shadow of the Law.

Along the way, he has forced us to reconsider the larger goals and purposes of our public schools. His book will provide an invaluable roadmap for anyone who asks the big questions, no matter what they think of his answers. Jonathan Zimmerman, New York University The essays in this book come at a critical moment and should be welcomed by anyone who is concerned that the values of peace, of democracy, be held high by the coming generation. From the Foreword by Howard Zinn, author of A Peoples History of the United States A valuable sourcebook for those who are uncertain about what patriotism is and, even more, for those who are certain that they know. Howard Gardner,author of Five Minds for the Future By bringing together diverse and often divergent perspectives of patriotism, Pledging Allegiance opens to critical scrutiny the very idea of loyalty to a country. In doing so, it not only offers a useful educational resource but also performs a valuable political service. I cant think of many books more likely to stimulate deep reflection and spirited discussion, and these activities, after all, are integral to democracy itself. Alfie Kohn, author of What Does It Mean to Be Well Educated?
