In this abridged, paperback edition of his much acclaimed, Bancroft Prize-winning From Jim Crow to Civil Rights, Michael J. Klarman has compressed his study of the Supreme Court's rulings on race into a tight focus around one major case--Brown v. Board of Education. Klarman goes behind the scenes to examine the justices' deliberations and recaps his famous backlash thesis, arguing that Brown was more important for mobilizing southern white opposition to change than for encouraging civil rights protest and that it was the resulting violence that transformed northern opinion and led to the landmark legislation of the 1960s. Klarman also sheds light on broader questions such as how racial attitudes change over time, how much judicial decisions depend on legal, political, and personal considerations; and the relationship between Supreme Court decisions and social change. Klarman's brilliant analysis of this landmark case makes the path-breaking arguments of his original work accessible to a broader audience of general readers and students.
