A book that sheds new light on this famous Supreme Court decision thanks to Rubin's extensive research and interest in the subject. There were many cases combined to go beyond just the concept of separate schools but to look at the larger picture of civil rights and the equality of all people. The background of each case is presented, the sacrifices that many families endured and the problems that followed even after the decision. Edie Ching (10-14)
