Product Overview

"Clotfelter presents an array of evidence showing the failure of school desegregation in the years since Brown. His angle of vision, measuring the lack of interracial contact, is both insightful and informative."--Mary Frances Berry, Geraldine Segal Professor of History, University of Pennsylvania, and Chairperson of the United States Commission on Civil Rights

"Fifty years ago, prompted by the Supreme Court's landmark "Brown" decision, this nation began a major policy initiative by moving to end the racial isolation of African American children in our public schools. In "After Brown." Charles Clotfelter provides the invaluable service of systematically chronicling the history and assessing the impact of this initiative. Much will be written in this anniversary year on the subject of school desegregation, but Clotfelter's meticulous, balanced, and sober assessment has set a standard for rigor that is unlikely to be surpassed."--Glenn Cartman Loury, Boston University

""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 educationduring 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"
