Living in Infamy

Felon Disfranchisement and the History of American Citizenship

Pippa Holloway

Studies in Crime and Public Policy

  • Using archival sources and state constitutional provisions, laws, and court decisions, this is the first history of felon disfranchisement in the United States.
  • Demonstrates that laws disfranchising for criminal convictions were used to target black voters as early as 1866, thirty years earlier than previously thought.
