THE PIG FARMER'S DAUGHTER AND OTHER TALES OF AMERICAN JUSTICE: Episodes of Racism and Sexism in the Courts from 1865 to the Present.
Edition: 1st trade paperback printing.
New York: Vintage Books, (2000). A book on how the law perpetuates myths of race, gender, and class by a former head of the U.S. Civil Rights Commission. Berry examines "a century's worth of appellate cases, ranging from a nineteenth-century Alabama case in which a white woman was denied her divorce petition because an affair between a white man (her husband) and a black woman (his lover) was 'of no consequence,' to such recent, high-profile cases as the William Kennedy Smith and O.J. Simpson trials." Notes, index. 295 pp. ISBN: 0-375707468.
