About the Book

Organized around two founding moments -- the American Revolution and ratification of the Constitution, and the period of Reconstruction following the American Civil War -- The Body Politic identifies a recurring, symbolic figure at the heart of American dilemmas of citizenship and nation, namely the human body. Holland reexamines both literature and events, from the writings of Thomas Jefferson to the adultery trial of Henry Ward Beecher, to demonstrate how embodiment and disembodiment shaped the imagination of the nation and of citizenship throughout American political history.

This work advances an original thesis that challenges the dominant schools of thought concerning the liberal tradition in the US.
