Stephen Halpern has written an important book about the 1964 Civil Rights Act. The thoughtful book explores important issues in a serious and careful manner. What Halpern so eloquently teaches us is that the progress we have made has come at considerable cost to the political fortunes of the liberal wing of the Democratic Party.

But one of the most poignant fields for the operation of this law is the whole issue of race relations in America, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its progeny. Halpern shows, with exacting scholarship, just how the effects of these acts differ from the intention, and how people in the US of all races have to rethink their most firmly held convictions, to square them with the observed (however unintended) consequences of the actions recent generations have taken, acting on just such convictions.

While the Civil Rights Act did not immediately change the landscape of equality in the American workplace, it signaled a fundamental shift in the treatment of racial and gender diversity. In concert with other social, legal, and political shifts, it paved the way for progress on issues like affirmative action, pregnancy discrimination, and sexual harassment. Without an understanding of the historical development and consequences of the Civil Rights Act, it is easy to lose sight of how the act has shaped the understanding of equality in the American workforce.

On the Limits of the Law is Stephen Halpern's compelling examination of the legal struggle to control the enforcement of Title VI of the 1964 Civil Rights Act―the historic provision prohibiting racial discrimination in programs receiving federal financial assistance. Although the provision appeared to have immense power to fight racial inequality in education,Halpern argues, attacking the problem through legal rights and litigation distorted our understanding of educational inequality based on race and limited the remedies used to address it.

"Stephen Halpern has made a substantial and original contribution to the analysis of law and civil rights. Concentrating on original or primary sources and including very informative interviews, he offers a superb review of the historical and political context of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the United States Supreme Court's desegregation decisions. All who are interested in civil rights history and enforcement, the administrative process, and the role of courts in pursuing racial and social justice will want to read this book."―Kenneth Tollett, Howard University

Contemporary scholars of law and the social sciences have awoken to an understanding of the law of unintended consequences. This law states, roughly, that the most important consequences of any law, regulation, or policy, will be those that none of its advocates desired.
Examples are too numerous for recitation here. But one of the most poignant fields for the operation of this law is the whole issue of race relations in America, the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and its progeny.
Halpern shows, with exacting scholarship, just how the effects of these acts differ from the intention, and how people in the US of all races have to rethink their most firmly held convictions, to square them with the observed (however unintended) consequences of the actions recent generations have taken, acting on just such convictions.
