A Connecticut-based constitutional scholar, Goldstone turns his attention in his book “Inherently Unequal” to the post-Civil War Supreme Court, and how it surgically and systematically eviscerated Congressional attempts to afford every American, regardless of race, “equal protection under the law.” That racism, social Darwinism, and politics figured large in their decision-making will surprise no reader of this book.
