Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A fascinating, eloquent, important study. Perhaps no one is better qualified to deal with its subject than J. Harvie Wilkinson III....A brilliant work, a major contribution to historical study and to jurisprudence."—Journal of Southern History

"A first-rate book—eloquent and informative in narration, sane and temperate in judgment. I am astonished that anyone could render so intelligible the uneven course of history from Brown to Bakke, yet without a moment's simplification."—The Washington Star
