Wilkinson's incisive history of the Supreme Court's halting role in integrating education focuses on the two most controversial Supreme Court decisions of this generation and the country's reaction to them

"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 "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 "This book is an excellent source for an issue that involves every American today. Certainly after reading this book it is clear we have come a long way (Americans in general) but also we have a long way to go. The minds have been won, now the hearts need to be as well."--Sam Giordanengo, Armstrong Atlantic State University
