Featured Resource List

Race law stories / edited by Rachel F. Moran, Devon Wayne Carbado. Foundation Press, c2008.

KF4755.R337 2008

 

Professor Michael A. Olivas co-authored “Jim Crow, Mexican Americans, and the Anti-Subordination Constitution: The Story of Hernandez v. Texas,” which begins on page 273.

 

This book brings to life legal opinions that address slavery, Native American conquest, Chinese exclusion, Jim Crow, Japanese American internment, immigration, affirmative action, voting rights and employment discrimination. Each story goes beyond legal opinions to explore the historical context of the cases and the worlds of the ordinary people and larger-than-life personalities who drove the litigation process. Each story illuminates the role that the law has played in both creating and combating racial inequality.

 

 

Laurence H. Tribe. The invisible constitution. Oxford University Press, 2008.

KF4550.T7865 2008

 

This book argues that there is an unseen constitution--impalpable but powerful--that accompanies the parchment version. Tribe shows that some of our most cherished and widely held beliefs about constitutional rights are not part of the written document, but can only be deduced by piecing together hints and clues from it. Moreover, some passages of the Constitution do not even hold today despite their continuing existence. Through a variety of historical episodes and key constitutional cases, Tribe shows how it has evolved and how it works, details its invisible structures and principles, and demonstrates the invisible constitution's existence and operative power.
