This chapter analyzes several cases of disputed citizenship drawn from the German colonies before World War 1, suggesting that the cases of marriage between white German men and colonized women of color show how citizenship law worked in a political context of colonial empire which was organized by gender hierarchy and race. It also discusses the legal issues and cultural meanings of citizenship in the context of Rogers Brubaker's book Citizenship and Nationhood in France and Germany.

Keywords:   disputed citizenship, German colonies, citizenship law, colonial empire, gender hierarchy, legal issues, cultural meanings, Rogers Brubaker, Citizenship and Nationhood
