In the latest edition of this book, authors Rosalie Berger Levinson and Ivan E. Bodensteiner provide a more comprehensive overview of Post-Civil War statutes, including Sections 1981, 1982, and 1983. Several key modern civil rights statutes are also explored in this edition, including Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act, the ADEA, the ADAA, as well as Title IX. The goal of this book remains the same—to provide law students with an understanding of the major federal civil rights statutes. Early civil rights statutes are explored in depth throughout this book, and are compared to more modern civil rights statutes. Some of the older statutes overlap with the more modern statutes, and may be used together to vindicate civil rights. Enforcement options are discussed and analyzed throughout the book, including available remedies, such as damages and attorney fees, as well as defenses and limitations on the power of Congress to pass such acts. Review questions included in this book give students the opportunity to apply the statutes they have learned to new fact patterns. Students gain additional practice on these topics by reviewing and answering questions regarding previously covered materials.
