Editorial Reviews


"Goldstone has written a well-researched, thoughtful, and persuasive treatment of the long campaign to integrate the University of Texas at Austin from the 1940s onward. She details in compelling fashion the many ways in which the political leaders of Texas and the officials of the University sought to frustrate efforts from students and faculty for social justice and equality toward black citizens. Her book represents an important contribution toward understanding why the battle over the University of Texas and its racist policies was so central to the civil rights struggle in that state.”--Lewis L. Gould, Emeritus Professor of History at the University of Texas at Austin

"Goldstone's comprehensive examination of the history of racial segregation at the University of Texas at Austin, fills a void that has existed in desegregation studies at southern universities. Her narrative is filled with insightful community portraits while also reflecting the external influences of the burgeoning civil rights movement. Well researched and carefully written, this book will be an important addition to the literature on the subject."--Robert A. Pratt, author of We Shall Not Be Moved: The Desegregation of the University of Georgia

"Goldstone's Integrating the 40 Acres is excellent reading for anyone who is interested in the civil rights movement, race relations, ethnic studies, and discriminatory practices in higher education. Goldstone has done a superb job in researching the struggles and obstacles in the integration of African Americans into the University of Texas at Austin."--Journal of American Ethnic History
