Reprinted from the Garland series Slavery, Race, and the American Legal System, 1700-1872. Facsimiles of 20 scarce pamphlets are collected in these two volumes. As the title indicates, most are reports of criminal cases relating to such crimes as murder and assault. Others address political issues arising from legal rights of free blacks. Also included are accounts of two fascinating cases relating to problems caused by the end of slavery. One involves the legal status of informal marriages between former slaves, the other involves the validity of slave contracts signed before abolition. "[The volumes in this series] belong in every library used for research, and in particular at all law school libraries. They will prove valuable to historians, lawyers, law teachers and students, and all persons interested in the problems of slavery and race in American experience.": William M. Wiecek, American Journal of Legal History 33 (1989) 187.

The Conspiracy of the Good: Civil Rights and the Struggle for Community in Two American Cities, 1875-2000 (History of Schools and Schooling)

Author: Michael James E.
Brand: Brand: Peter Lang International Academic Publishers

The Conspiracy of the Good addresses nagging questions that are part of the public debate over schooling. Why do our public schools, especially those in poor and working-class communities of color, fail to live up to the promises of the American dream? Why do reforms, those standard items in political campaigns, fail to create meaningful change? This book argues that «progressive», well-meaning, good-hearted men and women, who often advocate «good intentions» in the name of «helping those in need», have ended up doing more harm than good. The Conspiracy of the Good explores how these «good intentions» go awry. Michael E. James argues that the core value of the American experience is conflict – not consensus – despite what mainstream historians have espoused over the last few decades.

Race, Racism, and American Law (Casebook Series)

Race, Racism, and American Law (Casebook Series) Lowest new price: $35.00
Lowest used price: $24.85
List price: $114.00
Author: Derrick A. Bell
Brand: Brand: Aspen Pub

Bell (law, New York U.), in the newest edition of his work, continues his project of explaining "the law's role in concretizing racial difference, maintaining racial inequality, and reifying the status quo." He has updated a significant portion of the material, including the first chapter, introduced in the last edition, on the "nomenclature of race," which discusses the theoretical underpinnings of the emergence of race and racial meaning in the United States. Among the topics discussed in his treatment of race and American law are the use of "color-blind constitutionalism" to attack affirmative action; the use of history to legitimate American racial legal policy; developments in the areas of public accommodations, housing, and employment; discrimination in the administration of justice (including the death penalty); the state of the right to vote; and the impact of anti-racist and pro-racist protest on the law.
