Summary
"Equal Protection is an in-depth study of the right to equality and its diverse interpretations since the framing of the Constitution. With an emphasis on race and gender equality, the work sheds light on the many controversies over the issue, explores how equality has been viewed and interpreted throughout history, and illustrates how the legacy of slavery and segregation has shaped - and is still shaping - America."--Jacket
