?The author, George R. Metcalf, a distinguished reporter, former state senator, and president of the National Committee Against Discrimination, writes with a strong conviction and determination stemming from his belief that the only way to achieve racial integration is through racial togetherness. He points up this aphorism by writing a detailed history of school desegregation that describes the struggle to join white and black in the same classroom. Through extensive research and reference sources he documents the role a weak president and a docile Congress play in delaying and/or preventing justice and equality in the school desegregation process. The author brings to this study many years of experience covering the progress of school desegregation. He covers the period since 1964 in exhaustive detail. The book has extensive references, and it is well documented and well written. Highly recommended for upper-division undergraduate students, graduate students, and faculty.?-Choice
