Summary
In Race, Law, and Culture, Austin Sarat and others take the continuing controversy about race in law and culture as an invitation to revisit Brown and use this case as a lens through which to view that controversy and the issues involved in it. Revealing how Brown is implicated in America's persistent uncertainties about race, the essays in this book address crucial questions about race, law, and culture in contemporary America, such as: What were the legal and cultural visions contained in Brown? How have those visions been articulated in other legal struggles? Why does the subject of race continue to haunt the American imagination? Bringing together an unusual array of leading scholars, this readable and provocative work provides an important perspective from which to view questions of race in modern America
