Featured Resource List

Corey S. Shdaimah. Negotiating justice : progressive lawyering, low-income clients, and the quest for social change. New York University Press, c2009.

KF311.S522 2009

 

This book explores how progressive lawyers and their clients negotiate the dissonance between personal idealism and the realities of a system that doesn't often champion the rights of the poor. Shdaimah draws on over fifty interviews with urban legal service lawyers and their clients to provide readers with a compelling behind-the-scenes look at how different notions of practice and the legal system can present significant barriers for both clients and lawyers, and the concessions both often have to make as they navigate the murky and resistant terrains of the legal system and their wider pursuits of justice and power.

 

 

Anders Walker. The ghost of Jim Crow : how southern moderates used Brown v. Board of Education to stall civil rights. Oxford University Press, 2009.

KF4749.W25 2009

                    

This book draws long-overdue attention to the moderate tactics that stalled the progress of racial equality in the South and explores how three moderate Southern governors formulated masked resistance in the wake of Brown v. Board of Education by developing workable, lasting strategies to neutralize black political activists and control white extremists. Believing it possible to reinterpret Brown on their own terms, these governors drew on creative legal solutions that allowed them to perpetuate segregation without overtly defying the federal government. They instituted seemingly neutral criteria--academic, economic, and moral--in place of racial classifications, thereby laying the foundations for a new way of rationalizing racial inequality. Through these tactics, they hoped to avoid violent Civil Rights protests that would draw negative attention to their states and confirm national opinions of the South as backward. By crafting positive images of their states as tranquil and free of racial unrest, they hoped to attract investment and expand southern economic development.
