Race, Gender, and Tort Law

Author: Martha Chamallas,Jennifer B. Wriggins

ISBN: 0814716768

Citizenship is generally viewed as the most desired legal status an individual can attain, invoking the belief that citizens hold full inclusion in a society, and can exercise and be protected by the Constitution. Yet this membership has historically been exclusive and illusive for many, and in Citizenship and its Exclusions, Ediberto Roman provides a sweeping, interdisciplinary analysis of citizenship's contradictions. Roman offers an exploration of citizenship that spans from antiquity to the present, and crosses disciplines from history to political philosophy to law, including constitutional and critical race theories. Beginning with Greek and Roman writings on citizenship, he moves on to late-medieval and Renaissance Europe, then early Modern Western law. His analysis culminates with an explanation of how past precedents have influenced U.S. law and policy regulating the citizenship status of indigenous and territorial island people, as well as how different levels of membership have created a de facto subordinate citizenship status for many members of American society, often lumped together as the "underclass." "What kind of harms matter, and why? Steeped in the history of American tort law, Martha Chamallas and Jennifer B. Wriggins demonstrate how attitudes about race and gender run through the harms recognized---and not recognized---by American law. Along the way, this fine book sheds light on deliberate and unconscious stereotyping, the shifting treatments of workplace and family injuries, the influence of social movements on law and public attitudes, and alternative approaches to harms, causation, and damages. This book is brimming with insights about how societies do and should express what matters in assigning liability for human pain and loss." "This book asks important questions about the tort system. Tort law is largely taught and described from a doctrinal perspective that makes no attempt to see how it is actualy working on the ground. This book assesses how the tort system fares in operation by examining how race and gender influence court decisions in torts cases. A promising direction for scholarship on the tort system."
