Presentation of the book by Daniela L. Caglioti, Cambridge University Press, 2020
What did it mean to be an enemy alien, in the interstate conflicts that occurred over the nineteenth century and that climaxed in the First World War? This broad-ranging study highlights the many ways in which belligerent countries throughout the world mobilized populations along the member/non-member divide, redefined inclusion and exclusion, and refashioned notions and practices of citizenship. The book examines what it meant to be an alien in wartime, how the treatment of aliens in wartime interfered with sovereignty and the rule of law, and how that treatment affected population policies, individual and human rights, and conceptions of belonging.
