Review Text

  • By Howard on July 24, 2012

    First off, I didn't buy this book--I was handed a copy by a friend--but only halfway through this dense little volume I know I will buy one. And I will buy several as gifts when it comes out in paperback because this is the most important book on race and law that I have read since Michelle Alexander's New Jim Crow. Terry Smith writes with great erudition and clarity about the myths of a post-racial society after the election of Barack Obama and explains why marginalization of minorities is actually increasing under our first Black president.Academic and policy books generally reach a small but influential audience but the ideas and reasoned analysis of Terry Smith's excellent little volume deserve a wider one. At the very least it should become a textbook used in the training of lawyers. For those readers who know the history of Houstonian Jurisprudence and how that movement changed the face of America one lawyer at a time, Terry Smith's book could be the beginning of the movement we need today. Certainly it provides necessary consciousness raising backed by hard facts and rock solid research. I hope Smith's publishers do a good job getting review copies out.
