Why Difference is the Future of Civil Rights544
Outsiders: Why Difference is the Future of Civil Rights seeks to change the way we think about identity, equality, and discrimination. Rather than concentrating on groups, this ground-breaking book argues that the next wave of civil rights law can change the course of history by focusing on the individual and arguing for the right to personality.

Orly Lobel, Don Weckstein Professor of Law, University of San Diego and author of Talent Wants to Be Free Kramer says 'We are all outsiders' and I saywe all need to read this book. Outsiders is a wild ride into the contemporary realities of discrimination, identity, and accommodation. A tour de force, Outsiders offers an updated vision of civil rights law for the twenty first century. Insightful, engaging and well-written, this book will deeply shape the ways you think about equality in today's markets.
Carlos A. Ball, Distinguished Professor of Law at Rutgers University and the author of The First Amendment and LGBT Equality At a time when our country seems to be going backwards rather than forward on civil rights, we are in desperate need of new ways of thinking about what it is that equality principles require of us as a society. This is precisely what Kramer accomplishes in this original and brilliant book. As he persuasively argues, civil rights law will continue to fall short of its full potential if it continues to emphasize groups over individuals and similarities over
differences. Anyone who cares about the future of equality protections in the United States should read this book while urging others to do the same.
Sonia Katyal, Haas Distinguished Chair, UC Berkeley and author of Property Outlaws A refreshing read, offering a much-needed perspective on the limits and possibilties of law.
Zachary Kramer is Associate Dean of Faculty, Professor of Law, and Willard H. Pedrick Distinguished Research Scholar at Arizona State University, Sandra Day O'Connor College of Law. His work explores the law of everyday life: work, family, and identity.
