Rights Revolution by Charles R. Epp

Book Description

The text argues that far from being the fruit of an activist judiciary, the ascendency of civil rights and liberties has rested on the democratization of access to the courts - the influence of advocacy groups, the establishment of governmental enforcement agencies, the growth of financial and legal resources for ordinary citizens, and the strategic planning of grass roots organizations. Pointing to the idea that the shift in the rights of individuals is best understood as a "bottom up" rather than a "top down" phenomenon.

Books By Author Charles R. Epp

Pulled Over by Charles R. Epp Pulled Over, Paperback (May 2014)

In sheer numbers, no form of government control comes close to the police stop. Police stops are among the most frequently criticized incidences of racial profiling, and studies have shown that minorities are pulled over at higher rates. This book deftly traces the strange history of the investigatory police stop.

Making Rights Real by Charles R. Epp Making Rights Real, Paperback (February 2010)

It's a common complaint: the United States is overrun by rules and procedures that shackle professional judgment, have no valid purpose, and serve only to appease courts and lawyers. This book argues, however, that few Americans would want to return to an era without these legalistic policies.
