After Brown:
The Rise and Retreat of School Desegregation
Charles T. Clotfelter

Book Description | Table of Contents
Introduction [HTML] or [PDF format]


"After Brown offers an amazing array of data on changes in segregation over generations that students of desegregation policy will use in constructing their arguments about both the past and the future of integrated education."--Gary Orfield, Harvard Graduate School of Education

"Instead of dancing around the subject as many have recently done, Clotfelter comes to the point and shows clearly how and why the decision in Brown has had such a painful and tortuous history. The skill and clarity with which he deals with the subject make everything he says quite illuminating and valuable in any effort to understand what has happened. This is must reading for anyone who wishes to follow the history of public education during the last half-century."--John Hope Franklin, James B. Duke Professor of History Emeritus, Duke University

"This is an important, clearly written book with thorough analysis not duplicated elsewhere. While there are likely to be many different books, conferences, and events surrounding the fiftieth anniversary of Brown, Clotfelter's book should become the definitive source for a large number of these."--Eric Hanushek, Hoover Institution, author of Making Schools Work

"After Brown is a valuable contribution to the quantitative study of segregation and race relations more generally. The author is an excellent writer, with an easy, straightforward style."--Robert A. Margo, Vanderbilt University, author of Race and Schooling in the South, 1880-1950
