In recent years, a growing number of political scientists have sought to integrate studies of the rights revolution into accounts of the contemporary American state. [This book explores] the institutional dynamics, scope, and durability of the rights revolution. By offering an inter-branch analysis of the development of civil rights laws and policies that features the role of private enforcement, this volume enriches our understanding of the rise of the 'civil rights state' and its fate in the current era."--"@en ;
