Douglas's intelligent, comprehensive examination of this critical period makes his book important reading today."Charlotte Observer" --This text refers to the Paperback edition.


Provocative and engaging. . . . A remarkably balanced and well-written study, one that is sure to place [Douglas] in the forefront of scholars studying the history of school desegregation.--Southern Cultures

|Douglas writes concisely and clearly about the extent and limits of integration and persuasively about how it came about.--Journal of Southern History

|A fine book; it joins a small group of careful, scholarly studies of single communities' attempts to grapple with the problem of race over time.--Georgia Historical Quarterly

|Davison M. Douglas's exhaustively detailed, yet eminently readable, chronicle effectively captures the dramatic events surrounding the desegregation of Charlotte's schools. . . . [A] significant contribution to the literature on the second reconstruction.--American Journal of Legal History

|Douglas's intelligent, comprehensive examination of this critical period makes his book important reading today.--Charlotte Observer

|An important contribution on the cutting edge of scholarship about the civil rights movement, examining in detail how civil rights claims were developed and enforced in the city that produced the Supreme Court's major decision on busing as a remedy in desegregation cases.--Mark V. Tushnet, author of Making Civil Rights Law: Thurgood Marshall and the Supreme Court, 1936-1961
