Desegregation And The Law: The Meaning And Effect Of The School Segregation Cases, Blaustein, Albert P. and Clarence Clyde Ferguson, Jr.
7 Desegregation And The Law: The Meaning And Effect Of The School Segregation Cases
Blaustein, Albert P. and Clarence Clyde Ferguson, Jr.
Rutgers University Press 1957 1st Edition Hardcover Very Good in Good dust jacket 
The most significant decision ever rendered by an American court. The problems of desegregation touched the lives of every American citizen. The response to it involved political, moral, and social attitudes. But regardless of individual personal feelings about racial segregation, the authors prove there was no discounting the fact that the Supreme Court had spoken. Whatever has been done toward integration was probably done within the legal framework of Brown v. Board of Education. Chipped and stained DJ's spine is sunned, in new mylar, previous owner's name and the date he read it. Underlining. Tiny little footprints on bottom edge. Gray cloth covers of the book have two small faded spots at lower edge. ; 8vo 8" - 9" tall; 333 pages; 30270
