The Irony of Desegregation Law 1955–1995: Essays and Documents

This volume continues the story begun in the author’s earlier work, Removing a Badge of Slavery. It seeks to provide an interpretive history of the major developments in school desegregation law beginning with Brown II. It suggests we may be slipping back, both in theory and practice, to a new apartheid.
