The Law and Identity Reader
The main themes of the anthology focus on active democracy, civic agency, and civic advocacy. These are examined through legal cases such as Plessy v. Ferguson, Marbury v. Madison, and Brown v. The Board of Education, seminal writings including Federalist Paper No. 47 and Martin Luther King's Letter from Birmingham Jail, and readings on originalism, social class, and land reform.
Rooted in transformative learning theory and social movement research, The Law and Identity Reader places learners in the forefront and includes opportunities for dialogue and self-reflection. This anthology is well-suited to courses in civic engagement, law and society, governmental institutions, and democratic theory.
