Comparative Equality and Anti-Discrimination Law
This casebook compares U.S. equality and anti-discrimination law with the law of several other legal systems, such as Europe, South Africa, China, Colombia, India, and Brazil. Coverage includes introductory materials on theories of equality and sources of equality law, and materials on contested topics such as marriage inequality, employment discrimination, affirmative action, reproductive rights, secularism and the rights of religious minorities, and hate speech. Extensive chapter notes add context to the developing law in these subject areas. Accessibility is enhanced by an extensive teacher’s manual containing recommended syllabi for law school lectures, seminars, summer programs, online teaching, and undergraduate law, political science, and social science courses.
A 3rd edition of the casebook will be published by Edward Elgar Publishing, UK, in late 2019 or early 2020.
