White Supremacy pervades American history. Moreover, notwithstanding landmark civil rights gains and egalitarian aspirations, America remains segregated and unequal. This book examines the role of law in reinforcing and ameliorating racial injustice. Although surveying key historical precedents, its primary focus is the present. The book examines contemporary controversies across a variety of settings, animated by three fundamental questions: What is the current racial order? To what extent is it unjust? How can law and legal actors advance a more racially just order? The book uses cases, statutes andother sources of law, supplemented by problems and exercises, to equip students to both critique and construct pragmatic solutions to race-related controversies.

Throughout, it highlights perpetual controversies such as the nature of human relationships to nature and the appropriate extent of individual control over natural resource use. The Fifth Edition includes problems that help students develop and test their facility with the materials in the text and the concepts underlying those materials. The new edition will also have new chapters on international environmental law issues and on enforcement issues.
