Review

"Loving v. Virginia in a Post-Racial World collects the essays of an impressive array of leading scholars analyzing from virtually all angles a monumental U.S. Supreme Court decision that broke down one of the last bastions of de jure segregation in Jim Crow America. Destined to becoming the definitive collection of essays on Loving v. Virginia, the chapters offer deep insights about race and civil rights in the twenty-first century."

- Kevin Johnson
Dean and Apallas Professor of Public Interest Law, and Professor of Chicana/o Studies
University of California at Davis School of Law


"Loving v. Virginia in a Post-Racial World helps us see in full relief the curious relationship of marriage to racial freedom and equality. It contains some of the most thoughtful and original essays on race, family, nation and law – it will blow open the field."

- Katherine Franke
Isidor and Seville Sulzbacher Professor of Law
Director, Center for Gender & Sexuality Law
Columbia Law School


"Maillard and Villazor have brought together a terrific group of thinkers to explore the roots, the modern-day impact, and the unfulfilled promises of the Loving decision. Powerfully written, the essays remind us of the challenges that remain for civil rights law to keep pace with the changing complexion of America and with the marriage equality movement."

- Robert S. Chang
Professor of Law
Executive Director, Fred T. Korematsu Center for Law and Equality
Seattle University School of Law


"Loving v. Virginia in a Post-Racial World is an impressive collection of riveting essays that illuminate and elaborate Loving's position in American culture, history, and law. The essays reflect on Loving's formidable legacy, but importantly, go beyond it, pushing us to consider what this landmark decision has meant and could mean going forward. Thoughtfully structured and wide-ranging in its coverage of the legal regulation of intimacy before and after Loving, this volume will be an important resource of scholars and others wishing to engage the important question of how law shapes--or does not shape--the ways we live and love."

- Melissa Murray
Professor of Law
University of California at Berkeley School of Law
