Editorial Reviews

From the Back Cover

"An important book on the most important school desegregation case since Brown v. Board of Education. . . . Full of riveting descriptions of the Supreme Court Justices' internal deliberations, the Nixon administration's maneuverings, and a contemporary political context that included anti-busing riots in Boston and growing demands from 'liberal' northern congressmen for a constitutional amendment to bar busing."--Michael J. Klarman, professor at Harvard Law School and author of the Bancroft-Prize winning From Jim Crow to Civil Rights

"An excellent and well-written study that does a superb job illuminating the issues surrounding this case."--Davison M. Douglas, author of Jim Crow Moves North: The Battle over Northern School Segregation, 1865-1954

3 of 4 people found the following review helpful By Thomas G. Matowitz Jr. on April 26, 2011
Format: Paperback
I had only the most general knowledge of Milliken v. Bradley prior to reading this book. The author does an excellent job of placing this story in a context , and explaining why it was, and remains , significant. The author's writing style has a very desirable quality, namely the ability to present complex issues and cases in a manner that is concise, accurate, and very clear.
The book caused me to stop and think, and reflect about how similar issues played out here in the Cleveland area during the same time frame. I enjoyed the book, and I hope it will reach a wide audience
