520    "In this dramatic reexamination of the Jim Crow South, 
       Anders Walker demonstrates that racial segregation 
       fostered not simply terror and violence, but also 
       diversity, one of our most celebrated ideals. He 
       investigates how prominent intellectuals like Robert Penn 
       Warren, James Baldwin, Eudora Welty, Ralph Ellison, 
       Flannery O'Connor, and Zora Neale Hurston found pluralism 
       in Jim Crow, a legal system that created two worlds, each 
       with its own institutions, traditions, even cultures. The 
       intellectuals discussed in this book all agreed that black
       culture was resilient, creative, and profound, brutally 
       honest in its assessment of American history. By contrast,
       James Baldwin likened White culture to a "burning house," 
       a frightening place that endorsed racism and violence to 
       maintain dominance. Why should Black Americans exchange 
       their experience for that? Southern whites, meanwhile, saw
       themselves preserving a rich cultural landscape against 
       the onslaught of mass culture and federal power, a project
       carried to the highest levels of American law by Supreme 
       Court justice and Virginia native Lewis F. Powell, Jr. 
       Anders Walker shows how a generation of scholars and 
       judges has misinterpreted Powell's definition of diversity
       in the landmark case Regents v. Bakke, forgetting its 
       Southern origins and weakening it in the process. By 
       resituating the decision in the context of Southern 
       intellectual history, Walker places diversity on a new 
       footing, independent of affirmative action but also free 
       from the constraints currently placed on it by the Supreme
       Court. With great clarity and insight, he offers a new 
       lens through which to understand the history of civil 
       rights in the United States"--Publisher's description
