Throughout the nation's history, from before the Civil War through Reconstruction, across the years of lynchings and segregation to the Brown v. Board of Education decision and the battles over busing, no issue has divided the American people more than race, and at the heart of the race issue has been the conflict over school segregation and desegregation. This comprehensive reference book includes more than 260 entries describing the persons, court decisions, terms and concepts, reports and books, types of plans, legislation, and organizations central to the struggle for equality in America's schools. The volume spans topics ranging from emotionally laden topics such as busing to complex legal concepts such as de jure segregation. Each entry includes a brief bibliography, and the volume closes with a chronology and extensive bibliographic material.
