Now in paperback, the acclaimed history of the most important legal fight affirmative action has ever faced?the two historic University of Michigan cases that led to the Supreme Court's 2003 Grutter v. Bollinger ruling. "Seldom does a book of its genre match the quality of Gideon's Trumpet... Stohr comes very close in his fascinating, insightful A Black and White Case." - Choice The stories behind these pivotal lawsuits are told from multiple perspectives: the rejected white applicants who sued, the conservative legal group that saw the cases as the ticket to a color-blind Constitution, the university officials who called race-conscious admissions indispensable to their mission, and the judges who waged behind the scenes battles for control of the cases. Greg Storh followed the trials from Michigan to Washington, DC, with insider access to all the key parties. This is an important work on the law and on race relations in America.
