"A book that the reader devours quickly, ponders slowly, and forgets not at all-Moving and inspiring" * New York Times * "E.R. Braithwaite's postwar novel about a black teacher fighting to win the respect of white pupils in a school in the East End of London is a milestone in the campaign for racial equality" * Guardian * "It is the noblest, most moving, least sentimental account of life in a modern school and of a teacher's struggles with his pupils and with himself that I have come across" -- Michael Croft * Observer *
