XF "Capozzola does an excellent job of rendering the jingoistic, dogmatic mindset that characterized the country at a crucial time. ...All this the author captures in eloquently rendered and assiduously researched detail."---Publishers Weekly (starred review)

"Capozzola remind[s] us of the fragility of rights in the context of fear, providing us with cautionary tales about what is lost when unquestioned political obligations trump the preservation of liberty."---Eric Arnesen, Boston Globe

"Capozzola's fresh history of the American past is a bracing challenge to the American present---and future."---James Carroll, author of House of War

"[A] reminder that, particularly in time of war, the forces of coercion in these United States were frighteningly strong, and that the untrammeled freedom to make fun of the holders of power during a time of danger may be more recent than we realize."---Richard Bernstein, International Herald Tribune

"A sharp sense of irony and dry wit undergird this eloquent history."---Linda K. Kerber, author of No Constitutional Right to Be Ladies: Women and the Obligations of Citizenship

"Capozzola paints a rich portrait of America's complex and decentralized political culture."---Ernest Freeberg, American Historical Review

"A well crafted and important work. ... Capozzola convincingly argues that during World War I the power of the state grew at the expense of citizens' rights."---Andrew Wiest, History: Reviews of New Books

"[A]n eloquent blend of historical narrative and political theory [that] will bring readers right up to the present."

Daniel T. Rodgers, author of Atlantic Crossings: Social Politics in a Progressive Age
