Peter Wallenstein is Associate Professor of History at Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University. He is the author ofFrom Slave South to New South and Virginia Tech, Land Grant University, 1872-1997.

The first in-depth history of miscegenation law in the United States, this book illustrates in vivid detail how states, communities, and the courts have defined and regulated mixed-race marriage from the colonial period to the present. Combining a storyteller's detail with a historian's analysis, Peter Wallenstein brings the sagas of Richard and Mildred Loving and countless other interracial couples before them to light in this harrowing history of how individual states had the power to regulate one of the most private aspects of life: marriage.
