"This book fills a huge gap in the scholarly literature. Not only is the subject an important one, but the research base is excellent. Gardner wisely decided to work directly with immigration files--a surprisingly little used, and wonderfully rich, group of historical sources--and to include both East and West Coast immigrants. "The Qualities of a Citizen" will appeal to scholars across the humanities, social sciences, and legal fields, as well as to the general reader."--Peggy Pascoe, University of Oregon ""The Qualities of a Citizen" offers important new insights regarding the historical construction of national identity and contributes to the burgeoning field of border studies. It offers a useful and important contribution to the literatures of immigration history and women's history."--Sarah Deutsch, Duke University
