Daniel Martinez HoSang's Racial Propositions

I am about to publish a book review of Daniel Martinez HoSang's Racial Propositions: Ballot Initiatives and the Making of Postwar California (UC Press 2010) in the journal CALIFORNIA LEGAL HISTORY, a publication of the California Supreme Court Historical Society.  You can download the review here:  Download CLH10-Leib.  I will upload it to SSRN in due course.  I struggled with tone here a little -- not my forte, alas -- but I think I was able to praise the book for its substantial accomplishments and furnish useful criticism and analysis still.

Once you are already at Amazon looking at HoSang's volume, you should, of course, get your copy of Friend v. Friend, my latest book from OUP, which came out earlier this month.  It is, at least, much cheaper than Paul's book!

It's real. If I recall correctly, it's in New Hampshire.

Can't you take relief in the probability that your book is the better one -- and is just priced at its worth? And you have a very cool cover, indeed! Where is that intersection, by the way? Is it a real one? Church St and State St actually run parallel in New Haven....
