In this book, philosopher David Boonin attempts to answer the moral questions raised by five important and widely contested racial practices: slave reparations, affirmative action, hate speech restrictions, hate crime laws and racial profiling. Arguing from premises that virtually everyone on both sides of the debates over these issues already accepts, Boonin arrives at an unusual and unorthodox set of conclusions, one that is neither liberal nor conservative, color conscious nor color blind. Defended with the rigor that has characterized his previous work but written in a more widely accessible style, this provocative and important new book is sure to spark controversy and should be of interest to philosophers, legal theorists and anyone interested in trying to resolve the debate over these important and divisive issues.

Despite tremendous advances in civil rights, we live in a world where the sexes remain sharply segregated from birth to death: in names, clothing, social groupings, and possessions; in occupations, civic association, and domestic roles. Gender separatism, so pervasive as to be almost invisible, permeates the fabric of our daily social routines. Preferring a notion of gender that is fluid and contextual, and denying that separatism is inevitable, Nancy Levit dismantles the myths of gender essentialism Drawing on a wealth of interdisciplinary data regarding the biological and cultural origins of sex differences, Levit provides a fresh perspective on gendered behaviors and argues the need for careful cultivation of new relations between the sexes. With its focus particularly on men, The Gender Line offers an insightful overview of the construction of gender and the damaging effects of its stereotypes. Levit analyzes the ways in which law legitimizes the social segregation of the sexes through legal decisions regarding custody, employment, education, sexual harassment, and criminal law. In so doing, she illustrates the ways in which men's and women's oppressions are intertwined and how law molds the very definition of masculinity. Applying feminist methodology to the doctrine of feminism itself, Levit artfully demonstrates that gender separatism infects even our contemporary views of feminism. Levit asks questions that have been too long been unspoken--those that lie at the core of the feminist project, yet threaten its very foundations. Revealing masculinity as both a privileged and a victimized condition, she calls for a step forward, past the bounds of contemporary feminism and its conflicts, toward a more egalitarian and inclusive feminism. This brand of feminism would reshape traditional masculinity, invite men into feminist dialogue, and claim men as political allies.

Over the past several decades, American women have gradually overcome the legal and cultural barriers to equal opportunity. Women now receive well over half of all B.A.s and M.A.s, and working women have become the rule rather than the exception. Women are becoming physicians, lawyers, CEOs, and scientists and are founding their own businesses in record numbers.In The Feminist Dilemma: Why Success Isn't Good Enough, Diana Furchtgott-Roth and Christine Stolba argue that even though women's opportunities are now equal, women's and men's choices are not always the same. Ironically, the achievement of women's equality poses a serious dilemma for contemporary feminists, who do not want to acknowledge that some of women's choices, such as studying literature rather than math, or leaving the workforce to raise children, or even working part-time, lead to fewer women in top jobs. The flaw in contemporary feminist thinking, Furchtgott-Roth and Stolba contend, is its insistence that anything less than statistical parity with men in any field -- or even on college sports teams -- is proof of discrimination against women.The Feminist Dilemma describes a wayward feminist movement that does not want to acknowledge women's real accomplishments because their existence marks the end of the movement's reason for being. Rather than celebrate victory in their pursuit of women's equality, today's feminists feign defeat. They adopt the rhetoric of victimization, suggesting that women can never succeed on their own, and they crusade for preferential programs for women in education and the workplace. Politicians and businesses fear becoming feminist targets and so lack the courage to challenge theirclaims.The Feminist Dilemma explains how the contemporary feminists' ideological campaign in the courts and in Congress is undermining the principles of our economic system -- and how these efforts actually do not help women'

American society has long placed high expectations on our schools to advance this nation's prospects or to help resolve many of its ills. Throughout America's history, however, immigrant children have experienced difficulties adjusting to their new lives in our schools. This experience has been the fate of many African students who come to America with hopes of securing an excellent education, a better future, and a chance at the American dream; instead, they frequently find disappointment. Much of this frustration stems from the marginalization of African and African-American history and cultural studies in the curriculums of many American schools. The absence of any realistic exploration of Africa or Africans in American society has led to cases of harassment, teasing, and racially charged environments. This Isn't the America I Thought I'd Find explores the African student experience and offers advice for teachers seeking to facilitate a deeper appreciation of the emotional and historical connections between people of African descent and all Americans.

Simpson, but for individuals whose voices are too often silenced.Journey to Justice is an unflinching portrait of Johnnie Cochran and the legal system that he has so profoundly influenced. It will forever change our understanding of what works and what doesn't in America's most noble and troubling institution.

In public and private circles, the mere mention of race or the charge of racism generates a predictable response: silence. In Cultural Whiplash, law professor Patrick Garry examines how this has come to pass. In particular, he explores the negative fallout of the antidiscrimination movement as it has evolved since the 1950s and ʼ60s. During the civil rights era, racial discrimination was easy to spot. In some communities, laws made it difficult for minorities to vote or get decent jobs, enforced segregated schools, and denied minority students admission to many colleges and universities. Today, the racial climate is much different. Now people fear offending others through ʺsubtle, subconscious, or invisible racismʺ that cannot be detected without ʺassistance.ʺ In this context, Garry views confusion as todayʼs greatest racial problem, not silence. Accusations of racism have become so vague and so pervasive that the moral authority that defines our society is gradually blurred and confused. The suffocating social guilt that results has caused a steady retreat from moral and value judgments on all cultural matters, not just those relating to race.

What are the relations between philosophical theories and everyday life? This question, as old as it is profound, is the central focus of Theory and Practice. The authors include some of the most influential thinkers of our generation, among them Cass Sunstein, Jean Bethke Elshtain, Martha Nussbaum, Jeremy Waldron, and Kent Greenawalt. In sixteen chapters--all published here for the first time--the authors examine major attempts to reconcile theory with practice in the Western tradition, from Herodotus, Plato, and Aristotle to Kant and Heidegger, and examine contemporary efforts to grapple with this problem.

Since the mid-twentieth century, the United States has seen a striking shift in the gender dynamics of higher educational attainment as women have come to earn college degrees at higher rates than men. Women have also made significant strides in terms of socioeconomic status and political engagement. What explains the progress that American women have made since the 1960s? While many point to the feminist movement as the critical turning point, this book makes the case that women's movement toward first class citizenship has been shaped not only by important societal changes, but also by the actions of lawmakers who used a combination of redistributive and regulatory higher education policies to enhance women's incorporation into their roles as American citizens. Examining the development and impact of the National Defense Education Act of 1958, the Higher Education Act of 1965, and Title IX of the 1972 Education Amendments, this book argues that higher education policies represent a crucial-though largely overlooked-factor shaping the progress that women have made. By significantly expanding women's access to college, they helped to pave the way for women to surpass men as the recipients of bachelor's degrees, while also empowering them to become more economically independent, socially integrated, politically engaged members of the American citizenry. In addition to helping to bring into greater focus our understanding of how Southern Democrats shaped U.S. social policy development during the mid-twentieth century, this analysis recognizes federal higher education policy as an indispensible component of the American welfare state.
