Book Description: This text does a number of things that no other Critical Race Theory casebook does. First, it applies the case method approach. Not an anthology, it examines cases through the analytical framework of Critical Race Theory. Second, in order to appeal to the broadest number of students, the casebook examines cases in the first year curriculum. There is a separate chapter on Torts, Contracts, Criminal Procedure, Criminal Law and Sentencing, Property and Civil Procedure. Third, it examines cases where race is not always obvious, showing how race is often relevant even where it may initially appear not to be relevant. Fourth, it provides cases where the courts have applied a Critical Race Theory perspective.
