Well written and persuasive,
This review is from: The New Color Line (Hardcover)
I found this book to be a riveting and well written account of a period in our history that I previously knew little about. Even supporters of school desegregation (as we all are nowadays) will be shocked by the intellectual dishonesty through which victory was achieved in this case. And even more disturbing is the blatant diregard shown by the courts for the will of the majority as expressed through our legislative institutions. It may have all worked out for the best in Brown v. Board, but it hasn't in many, many subsequent cases where the courts have overreached their authority.
I am looking forward to reading Robert's and Stratton's next book.
