Overview

The End of Inequality takes a close look at Baker v. Carr, the pivotal Supreme Court case that established the right to equal representation in state legislatures for every American.
Stephen Ansolabehere and James Snyder detail the history of “one person, one vote” in American political theory and politics, and tell the story of the people—presidents, legislators, judges, lawyers, and ordinary citizens—who fought the battles to define this fundamental feature of American democracy.
