37 editions published between 2001 and 2017 in English and held by 3,357 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The coming race war? : and other apocalyptic tales of America after affirmative action and welfare by Richard Delgado( )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 2,841 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In The Coming Race War?, Delgado turns his attention to the American racial landscape in the wake of the mid-term elections in 1994. Our political and racial topography has been radically altered. Affirmative action is being rolled back, immigrants continue to be targeted as the source of economic woes, and race is increasingly downplayed as a source of the nation's problems. Legal obstacles to racial equality have long been removed, we are told, so what's the problem? And yet, the plight of the urban poor grows worse. The number of black men in prison continues to exceed those in college. Informal racial privilege remains entrenched and systemic. Where, asks Delgado in this new volume, will this lead? Enlisting his fictional counterpart, Rodrigo Crenshaw, to untangle the complexities of America's racial future, Delgado explores merit and affirmative action; the nature of empathy and, more commonly, false empathy; and the limitations of legal change. Warning of the dangers of depriving the underprivileged of all hope and opportunity, Delgado gives us a dark future in which an indignant white America casts aside, once and for all, the spirit of the civil rights movement, with disastrous results
Justice at war : civil liberties and civil rights during times of crisis by Richard Delgado( )

14 editions published between 2003 and 2005 in English and held by 2,287 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Delgado, one of the founding figures in the Critical Race Theory movement, continues the popular and thought-provoking Rodrigo Chronicles with his latest book. Justice at War features Rodrigo, a brash, talented lawyer of color; "the Professor," his mentor and straight man; the two women in their lives, Giannina and Teresa; and Laz, Rodrigo's conservative faculty colleague. Employing the narrative device he and other Critical Race theorists made famous, Delgado assembles a cast of characters to discuss such urgent and timely topics as race, terrorism, hate speech, interracial relationships, freedom of speech, and new theories on civil rights stemming from the most recent war."--Jacket
Must we defend Nazis? : hate speech, pornography, and the new First Amendment by Richard Delgado( )

14 editions published between 1997 and 1999 in English and held by 2,195 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Speech in any sort of meaningful sense requires equal dignity, equal access, and equal respect on the parts of all of the speakers in a dialogue; free speech, in other words, presupposes equality. The authors argue for a system of free speech that takes into account nuance, context-sensitivity, and competing values such as human dignity and equal protection of the law
Critical race theory : the cutting edge by Richard Delgado( Book )

26 editions published between 1995 and 2013 in English and held by 1,316 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Critical Race Theory has become a dynamic, eclectic, and growing movement in the study of law. With this third edition of Critical Race Theory, editors Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic have created a reader for the twenty-first century-one that shakes up the legal academy, questions comfortable liberal premises, and leads the search for new ways of thinking about our nation's most intractable, and insoluble, problem-race. The contributions, from a stellar roster of established and emerging scholars, address new topics, such as intersectionality and black men on the 'down low.' Essays also confront much-discussed issues of discrimination, workplace dynamics, affirmative action, and sexual politics. Also new to this volume are updated section introductions, author notes, questions for discussion, and reading lists for each unit. The volume also covers the spread of the movement to other disciplines such as education. Offering a comprehensive and stimulating snapshot of current race jurisprudence and thought, this new edition of Critical Race Theory is essential for those interested in law, the multiculturalism movement, political science, education, and critical thought"--Provided by publisher
Critical white studies : looking behind the mirror by Richard Delgado( Book )

12 editions published in 1997 in English and held by 843 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A sweeping portrait of the emerging of whiteness studies, Critical White Studies presents, for the first time, the best work from sociology, law, history, cultural studies, and literature. Delgado and Stefancic expressly offer critical white studies as the next step in critical race theory. In focusing on whiteness, not only do they ask nonwhites to look more closely at what it means for others to be white; they invite whites to examine themselves more searchingly and to "look behind the mirror.""--BOOK JACKET

The Price we pay : the case against racist speech, hate propaganda, and pornography by Laura Lederer( Book )

4 editions published in 1995 in English and Undetermined and held by 792 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

It is an oft-heard refrain that racist speech, hate propaganda, and pornography are "the price we pay" for our freedom of expression. This landmark collection of essays by 42 leading legal scholars, theorists, and activists contends that the price is too high, that it is borne unevenly, and that the standard legal response--absolutist adherence to the First Amendment--is inadequate, unjust, and in need of revision. The writers explore the increasingly urgent connections between hate speech and hate crimes, pornography and sexual harassment. They argue powerfully that "First Amendment absolutism" must not be allowed to jeopardize the guarantee of equal protection under the law, and suggest strategies for preserving civil rights which safeguarding civil liberties.--From publisher description
Understanding words that wound by Richard Delgado( Book )

7 editions published between 2003 and 2004 in English and held by 713 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"This volume succinctly explores a host of issues presented by hate speech, including legal theories for regulating it, the harms it causes, and policy arguments, pro and con, suppressing it. Chapters analyze hate speech on campus, hate speech against whites, the history of hate speech in America, and the careers of particular words as "nigger," "spick," "wop," and "kike." Particular attention is devoted to hate on the Internet, talk radio, and to the role of white supremacist groups in disseminating it."--Jacket
The Rodrigo chronicles : conversations about America and race by Richard Delgado( Book )

6 editions published in 1995 in English and held by 693 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In The Rodrigo chronicles, Delgado adopts his trademark storytelling approach that casts aside the dense, dry language so commonly associated with legal writing to offer up a series of incisive and compelling conversations about race in America."--BOOK JACKET. "Rodrigo, a brash and brilliant African-American law graduate, has been living in Italy and has just arrived in the offices of a professor when we meet him. Through the course of the book, the professor and he discuss the American racial scene, touching on such issues as the role of minorities in an age of global markets and competition, the black left, the rise of the black right, black crime, feminism, law reform, and the economics of racial discrimination."--BOOK JACKET. "Expanding on one of the central themes of the critical race movement, namely that the law has an overwhelmingly white voice, Delgado here presents a radical and stunning thesis: it is not black but white crime that poses the most significant problem in modern American life."--Jacket
When equality ends : stories about race and resistance by Richard Delgado( Book )

5 editions published in 1999 in English and held by 554 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Richard Delgado is one of the most evocative and forceful voices writing on the subject of race and law in America today. In When Equality Ends: Stories About Race and Resistance, Delgado, adopting his trademark storytelling approach, casts aside the dense, dry language so commonly associated with legal writing, and offers up a series of incisive and compelling conversations about race in America. The characters - a young professor of color, an aging veteran of many civil rights struggles, and a brilliant young conservative - tackle a handful of complex legal and policy questions in an engaging and accessible manner." "Has U.S. society quietly ended its commitment to minorities and to racial equality? In these new chronicles, Delgado' searches for an answer."--Jacket
No mercy : how conservative think tanks and foundations changed America's social agenda by Jean Stefancic( Book )

10 editions published between 1996 and 1998 in English and held by 530 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Jean Stefancic and Richard Delgado provide an incisive analysis of the Right's rise to power. The authors show that, since the sixties, the Left has had little to do with setting the country's agenda and that conservative think tanks and foundations have been systematically abetting a conservative revolution by funding a variety of issue-oriented studies and programs. The authors focus on seven areas in which this battle has been waged and won by the powerful conservative coalition: English Only; Proposition 187 and immigration reform; IQ, race, and eugenics; affirmative action; welfare; tort reform; and campus multi-culturalism. How has the Right managed to gain the advantage in these traditionally liberal campaigns? How can this be stopped? During this research, the authors found themselves in partial admiration of the dedication, economy of effort, and sheer ingenuity of the conservative forces. But Stefancic and Delgado seek to inform the American public about how the juggernaut operates - not to celebrate but to combat it. They challenge the Left to adopt the same sort of strategic focus and issue orientation as the Right to bring this country back to the center - before it's too late

7 editions published between 2005 and 2018 in English and held by 521 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Failed revolutions : social reform and the limits of legal imagination by Richard Delgado( Book )

5 editions published in 1994 in English and held by 372 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Focusing on the crucial discipline of the law, Failed Revolutions casts light on the many forces working against meaningful social change. Through the construction of authority, the marginalization of dissenting views, and institutions designed to replicate established opinion, the legal profession systematically blocks not just the possibility of change but even our ability to imagine it."--BOOK JACKET. "Failed Revolutions will be of particular interest for lawyers and legal scholars, but its wide implications make it valuable reading for any citizen concerned with the possibility of social reform."--BOOK JACKET

Must we defend Nazis? : why the First Amendment should not protect hate speech and White supremacy by Richard Delgado( Book )

4 editions published in 2018 in English and held by 245 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Swirling in the midst of the resurgence of neo-Nazi demonstrations, hate speech, and acts of domestic terrorism are uncomfortable questions about the limits of free speech. The United States stands apart from many other countries in that citizens have the power to say virtually anything without legal repercussions. But, in the case of white supremacy, does the First Amendment demand that we defend Nazis? In Must We Defend Nazis?, legal experts Richard Delgado and Jean Stefancic argue that it should not. Updated to consider the white supremacy demonstrations and counter-protests in Charlottesville and debates about hate speech on campus and on the internet, the book offers a concise argument against total, unchecked freedom of speech. Delgado and Stefancic instead call for a system of free speech that takes into account the harms that hate speech can inflict upon disempowered, marginalized people. They examine the prevailing arguments against regulating speech, and show that they all have answers. They also show how limiting free speech would work in a legal framework and offer suggestions for activist lawyers and judges interested in approaching the hate speech controversy intelligently. As citizens are confronting free speech in contention with equal dignity, access, and respect, Must We Defend Nazis? puts aside clichés that clutter First Amendment thinking, and presents a nuanced position that recognizes the needs of our increasingly diverse society." -- Publisher's website
