Library JournalFor anyone interested in the case of Brown v. Board of Education and the Civil Rights movement both before and after the Surpreme Court's momentous decision in the spring of 1954, this critical contribution is essential. Marking the 40th anniversary of the initial oral argument of the cases collectively known as Brown, this impressive piece of work, in the same league as Richard Kluger's Simple Justice ( LJ 3/1/76), not only emphasizes the decision itself but wisely focuses on the internal working of the High Court and the all-important, often controversial nature of constitutional interpretation. A fine analysis, this is recommended for all libraries.-- Stephen K. Shaw, Northwest Nazarene Coll., Nampa, Id.
