Pressestimmen"A growing number of scholars have helped us understand the law's impact on both the major events and the minutia of our daily lives. It's safe to say, however, that few do so with the provocative verve and vigor of Derrick Bell. This volume is a must read for long-time followers of Derrick Bell's work as well as casual readers looking for material that is both intellectually stimulating and entertaining."--Henry Louis Gates, Jr., co-author of The Future of the Race"Finally, the essence of Derrick Bell as a scholar, teacher, and activist is captured in the Derrick Bell Reader. Bell's remarkable career, as a civil rights attorney, scholar on race and justice, and activist promoting the rights of all citizens, is fully addressed. It is a great read."--Charles J. Ogletree, Jr., author of All Deliberate Speed"Derrick Bell's impressive body of scholarship continues to inspire generations of readers by inviting them into an extended conversation between him and a community of people who gave life to his vision and generously shared their own wisdom in search of justice."--Lani Guinier and Gerald Torres, co-authors of The Miner's Canary"Biting, intense, full of dramatic surprises and brilliant insights, Bell's work is the antidote to all the feel-good narratives of racial change."--Duncan Kennedy, author of Legal Education and the Reproduction of Hierarchy"For those who agree, or disagree, with Bell's radical departure from accepted racial notions, The Derrick Bell Reader offers plenty to dissect. The book could not have arrived at a better time."--Brian Gilmore, Howard University School of Law
