About The Book
“In this groundbreaking history of the modern American metropolis, Richard Rothstein, a leading authority on housing policy, explodes the myth that America’s cities came to be racially divided through individual prejudices, income differences, or the actions of private institutions like banks and real estate agencies. Rather, The Color of Law makes clear that it was the laws and policy decisions passed by local, state, and federal governments that promoted the discriminatory patterns that continue to this day.[From amazon.com]
