Vagrant Nation

Police Power, Constitutional Change, and the Making of the 1960s

Risa Goluboff

  • Strikingly novel reinterpretation of the history of the 1960s
  • Powerful example of how legal change can fuel much broader social changes
  • Reshapes our understanding of the rise of both the New Right and New Left in American politics
  • Uses the seemingly obscure issue of vagrancy law to upend everything we know about how "the sixties" came about
