Abstract

citizenship, one especially relevant to the meanings of the Thirteenth and other Reconstruction amendments: whereas freedom rights were gener- ally regarded as expansive, citizenship privileges tended to be ascriptive” (67). Thus the question, counterfactual but worth asking: what if the Fourteenth Amendment had never existed? We cannot know the answer. But it is one of the few questions this volume neglects to raise, and the collection is chock-full of answers and thoughtful interpretations. For constitutional and nineteenth-century his- torians—not to mention twentieth- and twenty-fi rst-century historians—it is well worth reading. Michael S. Green michael s. green, a professor of history at the College of Southern Nevada, is the author of Politics and America in Crisis: The Coming of the Civil War (Praeger, 2009) and Lincoln and the Election of 1860 (Southern Illinois University Press, 2011). Undaunted Radical: The Selected Writings and Speeches of Albion W. Tourgée. Edited by Mark Elliott and John David Smith. (Baton Rouge: Louisiana State University Press, 2010. Pp. 416. Paper, $24.95.) In 1905, W. E. B. DuBois’s Niagara Movement sponsored national memorial services for William Lloyd Garrison, Frederick Douglass, and Albion W. Tourgée.
