The first, “When Affirmative Action Was White,” probed the impact on African Americans of discriminatory features of decisions taken about social policy, labor law, and the GI bill in the 1930s and 1940s. For his next book, titled “Southern Nation,” he and a University of Pennsylvania colleague, John Lapinski (GSAS 2000), have built a database coded by policy areas of every Congressional roll call from the end of Reconstruction to the Voting Rights Act.
