"Skillfully cutting through the maze of legal technicalities and jargon to make clear the strategy of the NAACP, [Tushnet] has presented an extraordinary case study."--Journal of American History
"A brilliantly told narrative of how the NAACP developed a legal strategy for attacking segregation. It also raises the deepest question about under what circumstances law can be used by the weak to reform the structure of power."--Morton J. Horwitz, Harvard Law School
