Summary expansion
In this revision of her dissertation (in government, from U. of Virginia), Ehrlander (history, U. of Alaska, Fairbanks) considers the history and current state of the 1954 Brown v. Board of Education mandate that initiated school desegregation. To assess desegregation's progress, Ehrlander presents case studies of school districts in four states, describing the impact of desegregation they experienced following the 1954 ruling and in the 1990s. The Clinton administration's actions regarding fair housing and related issues are discussed in conclusion. Annotation (c)2003 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
