Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
"A brilliantly told narrative of how the NAACP developed a legal strategy for attacking segregation. It also raises the deepest question about under what circumstances law can be used by the weak to reform the structure of power. (Morton J. Horwitz, Harvard Law School)"

"Skillfully cutting through the maze of legal technicalities and jargon to make clear the strategy of the NAACP, [Tushnet] has presented an extraordinary case study. (Journal of American History)"
