SummaryWe spend most of our lives in buildings and see new ones being created around us all the time. But the number of people and disciplines involved in a building’s creation make it hard to understand the process as a whole.

The Birth of a Building is an introduction to those aspects of finance, law, urban planning, architecture, engineering, construction, and real estate development which underlie this fascinating event. Part One focuses on the “birds and the bees,” explaining the economic story which motivates people to create new buildings in the first place.

Part Two focuses on the longer pregnancy and delivery process, walking you through the specific stages that a building project will pass through. Every chapter begins with a simple analogy from everyday life that helps the total beginner relate to the subject matter.

And because it takes an interdisciplinary approach, The Birth of a Building can serve as an introduction to many different fields.

NYU Press

White by Law was published in 1996 to immense critical acclaim, and established Ian Haney Lpez as one of the most exciting and talented young minds in the legal academy. The first book to fully explore the social and specifically legal construction of race, White by Law inspired a generation of critical race theorists and others interested in the intersection of race and law in American society.

Today, it is used and cited widely by not only legal scholars but many others interested in race, ethnicity, culture, politics, gender, and similar socially fabricated facets of American society. In the first edition of White by Law, Haney Lpez traced the reasoning employed by the courts in their efforts to justify the whiteness of some and the non-whiteness of others, and revealed the criteria that were used, often arbitrarily, to determine whiteness, and thus citizenship: skin color, facial features, national origin, language, culture, ancestry, scientific opinion, and, most importantly, popular opinion.
