We are thrilled to announce a new Maize Books publication, A Nation of Widening Opportunities: The Civil Rights Act at 50, edited by Ellen D. Katz and Samuel R. Bagenstos.
The Civil Rights Act of 1964 was an extraordinary achievement of law, politics, and human rights. On October 11, 2013, a diverse group of civil rights scholars met at the University of Michigan Law School in Ann Arbor to assess the interpretation, development, and administration of civil rights law in the five decades since President Johnson signed the Act. This volume comprises edited versions of the papers that these scholars presented, enriched by lively discussions at and after the conference, and it contributes to the continuing debates regarding the civil rights project in the United States and the world.
A Nation of Widening Opportunities: The Civil Rights Act at 50 is freely available to read online, and print copies of the book may be purchased through Amazon.
