Summary
"In the first comprehensive account of the Supreme Court's race-related jurisprudence, a historian and a civil rights lawyer scrutinize a legacy too often blighted by racial injustice. Discussing nearly 200 cases in historical context, the authors show the Court can still help fulfill the nation's promise of equality for all"--
