Welcome to the Civil Rights and Civil Liberties Syllabus Project, inspired by Fivebooks.com.
We asked professors and practitioners in civil rights, civil liberties, and connected areas the following question:
“If you could recommend the 3-5 most important resources to get started in your area of expertise, what would you recommend and why?”
We want to serve as a stepping stone for anyone interested in gaining a deeper contextual understanding of today’s civil rights and civil liberties issues. We intend to build a comprehensive resource to readers.
A couple notes about each contribution:
- Our target audience includes both lawyers and nonlawyers, so the syllabus will include both introductory resources as well as detailed, narrowly-focused scholarship.
- We know law does not exist in a vacuum, so we encouraged cross-disciplinary resources from sociology, history, political theory, or economics.
We hope you enjoy.
If you have any suggestions for professors, practitioners, or topics, leave us a comment.
