Uncle Sam wants you : World War I and the making of the modern American citizen by Christopher Joseph Nicodemus Capozzola( Book )

22 editions published between 2008 and 2010 in English and held by 991 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Christopher Capozzola shows how, in the absence of a strong federal government, Americans at first mobilized society by stressing duty, obligation, and responsibility over rights and freedoms. In clubs, schools, churches, and workplaces, Americans governed each other. But the heated temper of war quickly unleashed coercion on an unprecedented scale, making wartime America the scene of some of the nation's most serious political violence, including notorious episodes of outright mob violence. To solve this problem, Americans turned over increasing amounts of power to state institutions. In the end, whether they were some of the four million men drafted under the Selective Service Act or the tens of millions of home-front volunteers or counted themselves among the thousands of conscientious objectors, antiwar radicals, or German enemy aliens Americans of the World War I era created a new American state and new ways of being American citizens."--Jacket
Uncle Sam wants you : political obligations in World War I America by Christopher Joseph Nicodemus Capozzola( )

2 editions published in 2002 in English and held by 3 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This dissertation offers a history of political obligation on the World War I homefront in the United States. Among Americans of the early twentieth century, the concept of obligation was central both to debates about citizenship and to the lived experience of public culture. Voluntary associations organized wartime civic life in the absence of a strong national state. The social networks formed in these groups sustained a culture of mutual obligation that mobilized for war, but also set in motion some of American history's most severe repressions of labor, peace activism, and ethnic difference. This dissertation examines the relationship of political obligation to military service in the draft and conscientious objection; it demonstrates the ties between voluntarism and coercion in women's clubs and vigilante organizations; and it concludes by showing how some Americans resisted attempts to legislate national loyalty by putting forth alternative understandings of civil liberties and working in new legal institutions like the NAACP and the ACLU. This dissertation uses government documents, newspapers, court cases, and letters to draft boards, local histories, and club records in order to examine ideas about citizenship in the context of the political institutions in which citizenship was practiced. It contributes to ongoing discussions across the disciplines surrounding the history of American political culture, the relationship between voluntarism and citizenship in civil society, and the origins of civil liberties.--Author's abstract
