This revised and updated casebook comprehensively compares the U.S. legal approach to problems of inequality and discrimination with the approaches of a variety of other legal systems around the world, including those in Europe, South Africa, China, Colombia, India and Brazil. This book provides an introduction to theories of equality and sources of equality law, and examines inequality and discrimination based on gender, race, ethnicity, sexual orientation and identity, religion and disability.

Key features:

  • Extensive chapter notes add critical context to areas of developing law
  • Analysis of a range of sources: each chapter includes case law, treaty law, statutory law, regulatory law and legal scholarship
  • A comparative problem-based approach, using concrete issues of inequality and discrimination to help students focus on real world concerns
  • Examination of key contested topics such as marriage inequality, the rights of persons with disabilities, affirmative action, reproductive rights, employment discrimination and hate speech
  • A supplementary online course with additional content and guidance for both students and instructors is available through Stanford Law School

    Written in a thorough yet accessible style and with contributions from leading international legal scholars, this casebook is ideal for lecture courses, seminars and summer programs in equality and anti-discrimination in law schools, as well as undergraduate courses in law, political science and sociology.
