From Jim Crow to Civil Rights

The Supreme Court and the Struggle for Racial Equality

Michael J. Klarman

A monumental investigation of the Supreme Court's rulings on race, From Jim Crow To Civil Rights offers an authoritative account of the causes and consequences of all of the Supreme Court's race decisions from Plessy v. Ferguson to Brown vs. Board of Education. Klarman spells out in compelling detail the political and social context within which the Supreme Court Justices make their decisions, offering the richest and most thorough discussion to date of how and whether Supreme Court decisions do, in fact, matter.
