Civil rights in the shadow of slavery: the constitution, common law, and the Civil Rights Act of 1866.

The debate over the 1866 Civil Rights Act spawned an important body of judicial doctrine dealing with almost all of the major issues in civil rights, and this book positions both the Act and its legacy in a broad historical canvas.
