In The Color of LawRichard Rothstein argues with exacting precision and fascinating insight how segregation in America—the incessant kind that continues to dog our major cities and has contributed to so much recent social strife—is the byproduct of explicit government policies at the local, state, and federal levels.

The Color of Law was designated one of ten finalists on the National Book Awards’ long list for the best nonfiction book of 2017.
