In the past twenty-five years, settlement of nearly 300,000 complaints of employment discrimination has vastly advanced opportunities for minorities and women.  In Modern Law, Alfred Blumrosen traces the operation of the law transmission system—the process by which the general principles of equal opportunity written into the 1964 Civil Rights Act were translated into improved conditions for  minority and female workers today.  This route takes the reader through the passage of the law; the responses of workers, employers, and the government; the interplay between courts, agencies, and the legislature; and, finally, the enactment of the 1991 Civil Rights Act, perhaps hastened by the Anita Hill–Clarence Thomas controversy.  The interactions between the law and the social and economic forces it seeks to influence make up the components of the law transmission system. 
    Blumrosen argues, however, that the equal employment laws are no longer sufficient for improving the lot of many Americans.  National demographic changes and shifts in global economic patterns have limited the laws’ effect.  Blumrosen asserts that employment discrimination law has become increasingly more technical and less influential, while activists, lawmakers, and others concerned with equal opportunity have not adequately focused their energies on the larger issues of urban problems, economic organization, and international transfers of employment.
    Modern Law is an important work for those who study law, those who practice it, and for those working to develop and implement various kinds of legislation.

About the Author:

Alfred W. Blumrosen, the Thomas A. Cowan Professor of Law at Rutgers University, has litigated, administered, and taught equal employment opportunity law for thirty years.  He was the first Chief of Conciliations at the Equal Employment Opportunity Commission and has served with the Civil Rights Division, U.S. Department of Justice, and the U. S. Department of Labor.  He is the author of Black Employment and the Law and the coauthor of many other books, including Labor Relations and the Law

Review:

“Alfred Blumrosen is widely recognized as one of the most influential academics in the field of equal employment law. . . . This book represents a lifetime of activity of scholarly reflection on the subject of the implementation of Title VII.”
—Janice R. Bellace, Employee Relations

Book Description University of Wisconsin Press, United States, 1993. Paperback. Condition: New. Language: English. Brand new Book. In the past 25 years, settlement of nearly 25,000 complaints of employment discrimination has vastly advanced opportunities for minorities and women. In "Modern Law", Alfred W. Blumrosen traces the operation of the law transmission system - the process by which the general principles of equal opportunity written into the 1964 Civil Rights Act were translated into improved conditions for minority and female workers today. This route takes the reader through the passage of the law; the responses of workers, employers and the government; the interplay between courts, agencies and the legislature; and, finally, the enactment of the 1991 Civil Rights Act, perhaps hastened by the Anita Hill/Clarence Thomas controversy. The interactions between the law and the social and economic forces it seeks to influence make up the components of the law transmission system. Blumtosen argues, however, that the equal employmnt laws are no longer sufficient for improving the lot of many Americans. National demographic changes and shifts in global economic patterns have limited the laws' effects. Blumrosen asserts that employment discrimination law has become increasingly more technical and less influential, while activists, lawmakers and others concerned with equal opportunity have not adequately focused their energies on the larger issues of urban problems, economic organisation and international transfer of employment. "Modern Law" should be valuable for those who study law, those who practice it, and for those working to develop and implement various kinds of legislation. Seller Inventory # AAN9780299137342
