My contribution the 1898 exhibition

In my previous post, I mentioned that my wife and I were able to attend the opening of a special exhibition on “1898: U.S. Imperial Visions and Revisions” at the National Portrait Gallery. Here, I will highlight my contribution to this excellent exhibition: my very first law review article on “The Pamphlet Wars: The Original Debate over Citizenship in the Insular Territories,” which was published in 1999 in volume 38 of the Revista de Derecho Puertorriqueño–101 years after the Spanish-Cuban-American War of 1898. My paper, which I researched while I was still in law school in the early 1990s, surveys the fascinating legal and policy debates in North America between the Expansionists, who supported the acquisition and annexation of overseas colonies by the United States, and the Anti-Imperialists, who were opposed.
