Author Richard Rothstein explodes the myth of the equitable American city in his study of the de jure—legislated—segregation in The Color of Law. Though it's long been accepted that racism has divided up cities, Rothstein argues, apparently with overwhelming evidence, that discrimination was enforced by local, state, and national law. According to Ta-Nehisi Coates of The Atlantic, Rothstein's research on the subject is "brilliant."
