Pressestimmen."..Winston opens his book by examining a pivotal case in America's history: "Brown vs. Board of Education". He explains the arguments waged both for and against integration and quotes extensively from the Supreme Court's final decision. By illustrating his thesis with this trial, Winston presents a powerful argument that 'access to [quality] education is necessary for all, in contribution to and participation in society' (7) simply because informed participation is always more desirable than the alternative." - Reference & User Services Quarterly
