Beschreibung

"Making an entirely novel proposal, this book is fair, accurate, and just plain smart. I have not seen so bold a public policy pronouncement in quite some time."--Samuel Issacharoff, Columbia Law School"Fiss sets forth with admirable clarity and rigor an integrationist manifesto for the early twenty-first century. The most striking aspect of his book is the unembarrassed, unequivocal, unblinking manner in which Fiss champions a position that has been in retreat since the mid 1960s. Fiss is boldly and seriously advancing ideas that will be scoffed at by dominant sectors of both the political right and the political left."--Randall Kennedy, Harvard Law School
