Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Affirmative action may be the most controversial public issue of the last decades of the twentieth-century. This three-volume series collects important primary materials including actual affirmative action programs, Supreme Court cases and briefs, and influential scholarly analysis on both sides of the question, offering clear and understandable explanations of a complex area of law, without sacrificing the sophisticated, sometimes challenging views of the most important thinkers and decision makers in the area.<P>The literature of affirmative action is vast, so the series emphasizes the most salient constitutional trends, illustrating developments and arguments with both primary materials and scholarly commentary. The series reprints examples of actual affirmative action policies, making concrete the nature of the programs at stake in the debate. Another major focus is the Supreme Court; all of the leading cases are reprinted or discussed. Each volume in the series is introduced by an essay providing an overview of the major issues, and suggesting additional court decisions, books and articles for those interested in further reading.

Book News Annotation:

A resource for teachers, scholars, and students, providing an extended introduction to the issue; reprints of significant cases and briefs; congressional testimony and other primary documents; and a selection of scholarly articles. The three volumes explore in turn affirmative action before constitutional law from 1964 to 1977, the apparent resolution of the issue by the US Supreme Court from 1978 to 1988, and judicial reaction from 1989 to 1997. Together they trace the major lines of intellectual and legal arguments originating outside the Supreme Court that have proved persuasive to future decision makers. The documents are reproduced from their original publication. No index. Annotation c. by Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews@booknews.com)
