Editors Frankenberg (Pennsylvania State Univ.) and Debray (Univ. of Georgia) include 18 scholarly essays that effectively and conclusively enlighten policy makers, professors, school administrators, legal and educational scholars and researchers, and undergraduate and graduate students of school administration by providing an exhaustive discussion of research, policy, and judicial decision making as well as executive and legislative thinking with respect to desegregation efforts since Brown v. Board of Education. As reported, the most recent two decades have reversed school desegregation efforts that began with Brown. The decline in educational benefits from racially integrated schools due to school resegregation is posited, along with options and strategies to pursue multiracial integration and help alleviate the adverse impact of the most recent course of action. The editors' and contributors' experience and expertise in law, research, data analysis, and policy making make this an absolute must-read for anyone interested in understanding the impact of judicial decision making and policy design on desegregation efforts since Brown v. Board of Education. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Lower-division undergraduate collections and above. H. J. Bultinck Northeastern Illinois University
