What People are Saying About This

John Brigham

"Juridical racialism is legal rhetoric infused with Anglo-Saxon racial superiority and Weiner shows how it operated from the Gilded Age to the decision in Brown v. Board of Education. Reading the news, one wonders if it is not still operating today."
University of Massachusetts, Amherst

Christine Harrington

"A rich and exceptionally clear account of the meaning-making context and constitution of citizenship."
Institute for Law and Society, New York University

Peter Goodrich

"Mark Weiner provides a rare and radical insight into the racial structures of American law. Reading this racial history through the rhetoric of case law decisions--juridical racialism--provides a dramatic sense of the anthropological scope of what law has done and potentially continues to do."
Cardozo School of Law

Peter Fitzpatrick

"An enthralling mixture of personages and cases that reveals much about the intimate combining of law and 'American' imperialism, including the complicities of scholarship."
Birkbeck School of Law, University of London
