Reading Guide and Questions for Gerstle, Chapter 3, “Hardening the  Boundaries of the Nation, 1917-1929” and 2 Documents Gerstle, Chapter 3: Once again, remember that you always want to think about Gerstle’s chapters as evidence for the  argument he put forward in the Introduction.  That is, how, in the case of Chapter 3, is Gerstle  attempting to prove his argument to you?  What evidence and historical events does he use to  support the book’s overall argument? These questions are designed to help you think about how the argument plays out in this chapter: 1) How did the IQ test (instituted during World War I) help to reinforce the racial nation? 2) How do the Alien and Sedition Acts relate to Gerstle’s overall argument?  How did the  federal government work with private groups to enforce the acts?  Which private groups  does he argue were most important?
