Abstract:

The rise of dual citizenship could hardly have been imaginable to a time traveller from 100 or even 50 years ago. Dual nationality was once considered an offense to nature, an abomination on the order of bigamy. It was the stuff of titanic battles between the United States and European sovereigns. As those conflicts dissipated, dual citizenship continued to be an oddity, a condition that, if not quite freakish, was nonetheless vaguely disreputable, a status one could hold but not advertise. Even today, some Americans mistakenly understand dual citizenship to somehow be 'illegal', when in fact it is completely tolerated. Only recently has the status largely shed the opprobrium to which it was once attached. 'At Home in Two Countries' charts the history of dual citizenship from strong disfavour to general acceptance.
