A monumental investigation of the Supreme Court's rulings on race, From Jim Crow To Civil Rights spells out in compelling detail the political and social context within which the Supreme Court Justices operate and the consequences of their decisions for American race relations. In a highly provocative interpretation of the decision's connection to the civil rights movement, Klarman argues thatBrown was more important for mobilizing southern white opposition to racial change than for encouraging direct-action protest.Brown unquestioningly had a significant impact--it brought race issues to public attention and it mobilized supporters of the ruling. It also, however, energized the opposition. In this authoritative account of constitutional law concerning race, Michael Klarman details, in the richest and most thorough discussion to date, how and whether Supreme Court decisions do, in fact, matter.

display_description Publisher's description: Do Supreme Court decisions matter? In this book, Michale J. Klarman examines the social and political impact of the Supreme Court's decisions involving race relations from Plessy, the Progressive Era, and the Interwar period to World Wars I and II, Brown and the Civil Rights Movement. He explores the wide variety of consequences that Brown may have had - raising the salience of race issues, educating opinion, mobilising supporters, energising opponents of racial change. He concludes that Brown was ultimately more important for mobilising southern white opposition to radical change than for encouraging direct-action protest.
