"Worth reading. The author genuinely loves ideas and avidly seeks racial justice. Infected by his enthusiasm, the reader may well be tempted to learn more about the important issues Delgado raises-an outcome that he would surely welcome."
-"New York Law Journal",
"Delgado's analysis is fresh and thought provoking."
-"The Law and Politics Book Review",
"This is narrative scholarship of the highest quality. "Justice at War" addresses a far-ranging set of topical social issues of our times, from affirmative action to hate speech to (in)justice toward noncitizens during times of war. Accessible, well-written, and deeply insightful, "Justice at War" represents the most creative and thoughtful, if not brilliant, installment of the "Rodrigo Chronicles" so far."
-Kevin Johnson, University of California at Davis
"Delgado raises important questions that most American studies scholarship ignores because of its narrow focus. Delgado's use of fiction and dialogue allows him to model a fairly broad, interdisciplinary conversation about contemporary issues that all too often is absent in much scholarly work."
-"American Studies", --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

The text was originally part of a dissertation, and the bloated, ostentatious writing style for which graduate humanities programs remain infamous is in full effect. It is to be expected that, lacking a certain level of acquaintance with postmodernist writings, most readers would find the the discussion of specific postmodern concepts challenging. The style of writing compounds this difficulty unnecessarily. Instead of summarizing concepts, the author repeatedly presents one or two paragraphs from a relevant text as block quotes. Ambiguity is introduced by the sloppy use of a slash to pack two meanings into one sentence: "Only Superman/Zarathustra can think the "'most abysmal thought.'" The actual points the author wishes to make are difficult to find amidst the history, mythology, and literature recitations. Numerous in-text quotes and references to obscure (non-postmodern) books and authors inhibit the flow of the writing.
In short, don't waste your money. This book is nothing but an exercise in which the author shows off her knowledge of everything she has ever read.
