Abstract

In Unfinished Business, Michael J. Klarman illuminates the course of racial equality in America, revealing that we have made less progress than we like to think. Indeed, African Americans have had to fight for everything they have achieved. Klarman highlights a variety of social and political factors that have influenced the path of racial progress - wars, migrations, urbanization, shifting political coalitions - and he looks in particular at the contributions of law and of court decisions to American equality.
