Race Law: Cases, Commentary, and Questions, Fourth Edition
  • F. Michael Higginbotham, University of Baltimore School of Law

Maintaining the easily readable style and tightly organized structure of the earlier editions, the fourth edition of Race Law provides an in-depth examination of the issue of race and values in the American legal process, from the formation of the United States Constitution in 1787 to the present. This book covers a unique blend of original source materials and scholarly analysis, including historical background information, legislation, judicial decisions, congressional hearings, commentary, biographical information, and questions. Fully revised and updated, it offers important new material on citizenship, immigration, politics, criminal justice, affirmative action, and voting rights, and important new cases such as Fisher v. University of Texas, Schuette v. Coalition to Defend Affirmative Action, and Shelby County v. Holder.
