of America, and associate of Emerson, Oliver Wendell Holmes, Harriet
Beecher Stowe, Mark Twain, and several U.S. Presidents. Hale?s
writings include ?The Man Without a Country? (one of the most
widely read and reprinted Civil War texts) and its sequel, Philip
Nolan?s Friends, along with dozens of novels and short stories that
appeared in leading periodicals like The Atlantic Monthly and North
American Review.

proposals that link Hale?s work to critical issues like nationalism,
nineteenth-century Unitarianism, citizenship, international law,
