From the Publisher:

"An extraordinary research effort....Kluger has written three distinct books within one jacket. The first is an account of race relations in America. The second is a detailed study of the complex process--the litigation strategy--by which the five consolidated cases that we know as Brown arose and worked their way up to the Supreme Court. The third is a meticulously researched account of the process within the Supreme Court by which the Brown decision was reached."--Harvard Law Review

From the Back Cover:

"An extraordinary research effort, and a major contribution to our understanding of the Supreme Court. ...Kluger has written three distinct books within one jacket. The first is an account of race relations in America. The second is a detailed study of the complex process -- the litigation strategy -- by which the five consolidated cases that we now know as Brown arose and worked their way up to the Supreme Court. The third is a meticulously researched account of the process within the Supreme Court by which the Brown decision was reached. -- Harvard Law Review

"A thought-provoking work that should become part of the standard literature on race relations."

-- The New York Times Book Review

"The definitive account, to date, of the struggle for black equality in America." -- The Nation
