The Supreme Court, Race, and Civil Rights

From Marshall to Rehnquist

Abraham L. Davis,

The Supreme Court, Race, and Civil Rights: From Marshall to Rehnquist

Discover the first law textbook to provide a comprehensive examination of the Supreme Court′s institutional commitment to equality over a time span of more than 190 years. Filling the void of literature in this area, this long-awaited volume incorporates information from the disciplines of law, political science, and history to provide the student with a thorough analysis of race and law from the perspective of politically disadvantaged groups. Carefully selected cases stimulate classroom discussion and at the same time cultivate competence in reading actual Supreme Court rulings. Accessible and flexible, this textbook affords professors and instructors an opportunity to pick and choose from the essays and cases for each historical period. The authors instill in students a deeper appreciation of the multicultural component of ongoing struggles for equality within the American context.

Written specifically for undergraduate, graduate, and law school courses that emphasize civil rights/race and the law, The Supreme Court, Race, and Civil Rights stands alone as an outstanding textbook.
