"Throughout the text, the blend of factual and statistical data with explanation and historical interpretation makes this a treasure chest for the user. Pletcher knows this historical neighborhood as well as anyone alive, and has previously written about it. He now gives us an invaluable guidebook to the territory."—David Healy
"The book is written with great clarity and energy. It is a judicious argument suitable to the complexity of the subject. . . . In many ways it is this generation's final statement about a long controversial subject."—William H. Becker
