Beschreibung

"For years, Fred Wirt has been a sane, sensible, deeply insightful analyst of some of our nation's most complicated and controversial issues--those dealing with race, class, legal compulsion, and cultural change. He takes on all of those issues here in a book as wise as it is illuminating. It shows us to ourselves in a way that we can immediately comprehend but that suggests new possibilities and grander visions. This is simply a wonderful book."--Jennifer Hochschild, Princeton University

Pressestimmen

"This book is a very important treatment of one of the greatest accomplishments of the American political and legal system - the elimination of the system of state-imposed apartheid in the South... [It] offers richly grounded observations by the same scholar of the same issues over a quarter century of profound and complex change and provides an important resource for historians and those trying to think about the capacity of law to resolve aspects of the American racial crisis." - Gary Orfield, from the foreword "For years, Fred Wirt has been a sane, sensible, deeply insightful analyst of some of our nation's most complicated and controversial issues - those dealing with race, class, legal compulsion, and cultural change.
