Editorial Reviews

Review


"A comprehensive yet very accessible book on a controversial topic...an outstanding source. Recommended."--CHOICE


"Amidst the often rancorous national debate over reparations for slavery, Alfred Brophy's Reparations: Pro and Con stands out as a work of rare balance and judiciousness. Rather than offering another partisan polemic, Brophy takes seriously the arguments of both advocates and opponents of reparations, illuminating the complex historical, political, legal, and moral questions entailed by any confrontation with historical injustice. Whatever your politics, you will profit from reading this book."--James T. Campbell, author of Middle Passages and Songs of Zion


"Professor Alfred Brophy has written a book about reparations and its contentious qualities that is a must-read for all. While reparations was a dormant subject in the twentieth century, Alfred Brophy has raised it to an exalted status: if you want to know the essence of the debate, this book is for you."-Charles K. Ogletree, Jr., Jesse Climenko Professor, Harvard Law School, and Executive Director of Harvard's Charles Hamilton Houston Institute for Race and Justice


"In spite of our victory over master race theory in World War II, in spite of Brown vs. Board of Education and the heartwrenching victories of the civil rights struggle, Jim Crow lives on in fact if not in law. Brophy's book operates in the realm of fact. How would we act if repairing injustice were the true goal of our hearts? What world would we make? Answering the questions posed in this book is the way to peace, at last."--Mari Matsuda, co-author, with Charles Lawrence, of We Won't Go Back: Making the Case for Affirmative Action and Professor, Georgetown University Law Center

The packaging was great in terms of protecting the book, but opening it was a bit of a challenge. This was not an ordinary bubble envelope, but a thick envelope with some shredding material coming out of it. Just be ready for some mess when opening the envelope :-) The book was in great shape.
