📒Was Blind But Now I See ✍ Barbara J. Flagg
✏Was Blind But Now I See Book Summary : Race does not speak to most white people. Rather, whites tend to associate race with people of color and to equate whiteness with racelessness. As Barbara J. Flagg demonstrates in this important book, this "transparency" phenomenon—the invisibility of whiteness to white people—profoundly affects the ways in whites make decisions: they rely on criteria perceived by the decision maker as race-neutral but which in fact reflect white, race-specific norms. Flagg here identifies this transparently white decision making as a form of institutional racism that contributes significantly, though unobtrusively, to the maintenance of white supremacy. Bringing the discussion to bear on the arena of law, Flagg analyzes key areas of race discrimination law and makes the case for reforms that would bring legal doctrine into greater harmony with the recognition of institutional racism in general and the transparency phenomenon in particular. She concludes with an exploration of the meaning of whiteness in a pluralist culture, paving the way for a positive, nonracist conception of whiteness as a distinct racial identity. An informed and substantive call for doctrinal reform, Was Blind But Now I See is the most expansive treatment yet of the relationship between whiteness and law.
📒Let The Record Show ✍ Richard Frazier
✏Let the Record Show Book Summary : Let the Record Show is an insightful, historical examination of the practice of law in Ingham County, Michigan, home of the state's capital in Lansing. It traces the evolution and development of the Ingham County Bar Association (ICBA), beginning with a review of how European law shaped and influenced Michigan's legal system in the nineteenth century. Early chapters introduce some of Ingham County's first settlers -- the Lowes, Tuttles, Montgomerys, Lindermans, Cases, Burchards, Danforths, Kilbournes, and Longyears -- names that would become synonymous with Michigan's legal history and court system. Richard Frazier analyzes the practice of law in Ingham County, highlighting celebrated criminal trials, including the famous nineteenth-century Marble murders; weaves in accounts of the lives of prominent Lansing-area attorneys and judges; and discusses ongoing legal changes that occurred in the twentieth-century, including the reorganization of the ICBA in 1909, the end of a male-dominated court and legal system, the impact of automobiles on legal proceedings, as well as a discussion of the 1995 decision to relocate the Detroit School of Law to Michigan State University. Let the Record Show unravels the complex history of one of Michigan's most important legal communities. Included are histories of Lansing-area legal firms and appendices containing significant original documents and several orations; numerous photographs included in the volume add to its appeal. This timely work fills a gap in our understanding of jurisprudence in Michigan.
📒Practical Equality Forging Justice In A Divided Nation ✍ Robert Tsai
✏Practical Equality Forging Justice in a Divided Nation Book Summary : A path-breaking account of how Americans have used innovative legal measures to overcome injustice—and an indispensable guide to pursuing equality in our time. Equality is easy to grasp in theory but often hard to achieve in reality. In this accessible and wide-ranging work, American University law professor Robert L. Tsai offers a stirring account of how legal ideas that aren’t necessarily about equality at all—ensuring fair play, behaving reasonably, avoiding cruelty, and protecting free speech—have often been used to overcome resistance to justice and remain vital today. Practical Equality is an original and compelling book on the intersection of law and society. Tsai, a leading expert on constitutional law who has written widely in the popular press, traces challenges to equality throughout American history: from the oppression of emancipated slaves after the Civil War to the internment of Japanese Americans during World War II to President Trump’s ban on Muslim travelers. He applies lessons from these and other past struggles to such pressing contemporary issues as the rights of sexual minorities and the homeless, racism in the criminal justice system, police brutality, voting restrictions, oppressive measures against migrants, and more. Deeply researched and well argued, Practical Equality offers a sense of optimism and a guide to pursuing equality for activists, lawyers, public officials, and concerned citizens.
