"Mixed Race America and the Law is...a provocative introduction to racial mixture and the law."

Journal of Ethnic History

"The first work of its type. . . It offers a wide selection of material, almost all of it thoughtful and provocative>"

Trial

"In Mixed Race America and the Law: A Reader, Kevin R. Johnson has edited one of the most important and timely anthologies on the general topic of race mixture and the law."

The Law and Politics Book Review

For the first time in United States history, the Year 2000 census allowed people to check more than one box to identify their race. This new way of gathering data and characterizing race and ethnicity reflects important changes in how racial identity is understood in America. Besides acknowledging the presence of mixed race citizens, this new understanding promises to have major implications for American law and policy.

With this anthology, Kevin R. Johnson brings together ground-breaking scholarship on the mixed race experience in America to examine the impact of law on these citizens. The foundational essays that comprise the collection present the historical, social, and political contexts surrounding the body of law that addresses race while analyzing the implications of multiracialism. Divided into 12 sections, the reader includes an introduction by Johnson and essential essays by contributors such as Garrett Epps, Judith Resnick, Richard Delgado, Ian Haney-L&oacute;pez, Randall Kennedy, and Patricia Hill Collins. Selections address miscegenation, racial classification, interracial adoption, the 2000 census, "passing," and other topics; each section includes questions to promote further discussion. This book is an invaluable resource for examining the complexities of racial categories in modern America.

Synopsis:

"All readers interested in today's constitutional courts will profit from eavesdropping on this conversation."

Judicature

This collection of essays on constitutional law is designed to introduce the reader to the range of issues concerning constitutional theory that occupy the attention of constitutional scholars in the United States today.
