Starred Review. Grade 8 Up–There are many books that cover this landmark decision but several interesting points set this one apart from the crowd. It opens with an Important People, Places, and Terms section and a detailed chronology that takes readers from an 1849 school-segregation case to the 2003 University of Michigan rulings on student diversity. The book includes a narrative overview, biographies of individuals involved, and primary sources. This latter, impressive section gives this treatment of Brown v. Board of Education depth and promotes a greater empathy from readers. Numerous sidebars provide background information such as describing how the civil court system works or the founding of the NAACP. Archival photos and shaded boxes help to break up the more tedious legal details of the text. Telgen has done a fine job of making this topic accessible to and engaging for today's students. Look no further to find an all-in-one source for class assignments.–Lori Matthews, Loyola School, New York City
