This is Not Civil Rights: Discovering Rights Talk in 1939 America

Beginning with a set of letters from the Depression, George Lovell examines some of the earliest examples of Americans discussing their dissatisfaction with political and social conditions in terms of their "rights." Used today to frame all manner of discussion, "rights talk" is a powerful way to look at what the idealized version of America is to folks on all ends of the political spectrum.

George LovellGeorge I. Lovell is associate professor of political science at the University of Washington. He is the author of Legislative Deferrals.
