Toxic Diversity: Race, Gender, and Law Talk in America
NYU Press, 2005 - 335 páginas
Toxic Diversity offers an invigorating view of race, gender, and law in America.

Far from energizing women and minorities, Subotnik concludes, theorists divert their energies from implementing America's social justice agenda.
