Associate Professor Katie Eyer (Rutgers Law School), writing for the American Constitution Society blog, reviewed Professor Suja Thomas' and Sandra Sperino's book Unequal: How America's Courts Undermine Discrimination Law.
In the review, she writes:
"For those who care about the eradication of continued employment discrimination in our society, Sperino and Thomas’s book is a call to action. And indeed, Sperino and Thomas’s final chapter is a call to policy makers, judges, and even employers to change the current state of affairs. But even for those who may not share Sperino and Thomas’s perspective—or who may lack the position or power to effectuate change—Unequal is essential reading. In one slim volume, Sperino and Thomas have laid out concisely virtually all of the doctrines that play a key role in defeating claims of intentional discrimination brought by employees today. They have provided a wealth of detail of how those doctrines, in real world cases, allow employers to prevail, even in the face of explicit evidence of discrimination. In short, Unequal’s eye-opening and informative account is a valuable read for most anyone with a stake in the current state of anti-discrimination law—judges, policy makers, lawyers, teachers and scholars of discrimination law, employers and most of all employees."
