Summary This title analyses immigration and nationality laws in Argentina, Italy, and Spain since the mid-19th century to reveal the contextual dynamics that have shaped the quality of legal and affective bonds between nation-states and citizens. It shows how the recent erosion of rights and privileges in Argentina has motivated individuals to seek nationality in ancestral homelands, thinking two nationalities would be more valuable than one. It details the legal and administrative mechanisms at work, describes the patterns of law and practice, and explores the implications for how we understand the very meaning of citizenship.
