Overview

More than any of his recent predecessors, President Reagan has raised fundamental questions regarding the directions of the human rights policies pursued for the past twenty years. The ten original essays collected in this volume examine the influence of the Reagan Administration on the Justice Department, voting rights, gender discrimination, the ERA, education, housing discrimination, the "pro-family" agenda, affirmative action, the Civil Rights Commission, and international human rights policy. By bringing together information on many areas of human rights, the volume presents an important overall picture of the Reagan administration's impact on this vital policy field.
