 Kermit Roosevelt critically acclaimed novel Allegiance (Regan Arts) is based on actual events in WWII, a defining moment when American values and national security conflicted under FDR's policies. A riveting political thriller, it captures the epic drama and heroism of time that echoes our world today. The president of the Authors Guild declares it "Brilliant!".

Kermit is the great great grandson of Teddy Roosevelt. 

The narrative immediately immerses us in the life of Cash Harrison, a young idealist lawyer who accepts a clerkship with Supreme Court Justice Hugo Black, and never anticipates the criminal and politics acts he'll stumble upon in this ultimate bastion of justice. What he finds will not only alter his own future, but America's. Based a true story, the novel takes readers inside Washington, DC and the Supreme Court to explore issues that are part of today's national conversation.

 

Roosevelt, a finalist for the Harper Lee Prize, is a professor of constitutional law at the University of Pennsylvania Law School, a former clerk for Supreme Court Justice David Souter, and the author of the national campus bestseller In the Shadow of the Law, winner of the Philadelphia Athenaeum Award and a Christian Science Monitor Best Book of the year.  He is the great-great-grandson of President Theodore Roosevelt.
