From the Publisher"Richard Delgado is a towering figure in contemporary legal studies. His subtle intelligence, deep love of justice, and democratic vision are contagious. There is no one like him on the scene!"
“Richard Delgado and his alter-ego Rodrigo are a breath of fresh air in the legal academy and social sciences - or perhaps a tornado, if tornados can be salutary. Delgado's essays mix passion, commitment, a hard-edged intellect, deep knowledge, and imagination to create a corpus of work that blows away conventional wisdom and easy assumptions. His insistence that class matters as well as race, that free speech should be examined as well as celebrated, that narrative generates as much insight as logic or data all teach us to be better scholars and better citizens. This collection of essays is a boon to those of us who already value his work and it will extend his reach to those poor benighted souls who do not yet know it as well as they should.”—
“A triple delight: a path-finding lawyer, a mesmerizing story-teller, and a Quixotic hero, all in one. The Rodrigo Chronicles are lucid explorations of the shifting paradigms that define America today. They prove that Richard Delgado is more than a brainchild of the Enlightenment; he's one of its sharpest critics. His work is at the avant-garde in rethinking race and democracy. In short, he's the real thing, and the rarest.”
"Richard Delgado has done it again! In these classic essays, Delgado's restless mind touches on everything from the politics of academic scholarship to the economics of right-wing activism, from the harms of hate speech to the connection between racism and free-market economics. His writing is crisp, his imagination lively, and his thoughts always provocative and trenchant. This is an essential collection for those interested in critical race theory and critical legal scholarship more generally."—
