Editorial Reviews

Review

" . . . tells the story . . . with an uncanny succinctness, ease and grace that at once humanizes the law and makes it accessible to those without an advanced degree in it." --Law and Politics Book Review

"Lucidly written, compellingly narrated, and comprehensively researched, this book provides one-stop shopping for students and scholars who previously had to stitch together the case from secondary sources. . . . In the process, Strum captures the captivating complexity of California's multiracial history."--Pacific Historical Review

"The texture Strum reveals is an excellent example of why the back stories to important cases are so essential to understanding the full context. Strum is particularly accomplished at the telling detail."--Journal of Legal Education

"[In the] first book-length discussion of this case, Strum analyzes how World War II altered the legal views about race and ethnic discrimination." --Los Angeles Daily Journal

"Strum's fascinating account of this largely ignored case reminds us that the civil rights movement had many strands."--American Review of Politics

"Mendez v. Westminster plays an underappreciated role in the struggle for civil rights in the United States. Strum brings the people and debates of the case vividly to life, particularly the dedication of the Latino parents at the center of the case who fought for equal education for their children in public schools. . . . Reminds us of the key part that Latinos have played, together with African-Americans, in the continuing battles for civil rights for all Americans in the United States."--Michael Jones-Correa, author of Between Two Nations: The Political Predicament of Latinos in New York City and coauthor of Making It Home: Latino Lives in America
