Summary: The 1954 decision by the Supreme Court of the United States in the case of Brown v. Board of Education (of Topeka, Kansas) brought centuries of legal segregation in this country to an end. It was and is without question one of the truly significant events in American history. The case climaxed the long battle for black equality in education, making hard law out of vague principles and opening the way for the broad civil rights unpheavals of the 1960s.

Simpl moree Justice is the story of that battle. It traces the entire background of the epochal ruling, from its remote legal and cultural roots to the complex personalities of those involved in making it. Here is the human drama, in all its dimensions: people bucking the white power structure in Topeka, braving night riders in South Carolina, rallying high school students in Virginia--and at a dozen times and places showing their refusal to accept defeat. Here, too, is the extraordinary tale of the black legal establishment forced literally to invent itself before it could join the fight, thus patiently assembling, in courtroom after courtroom, a body of law that would serve to free its people.

We see how two great forces--the groundswell black urge for fair treatment and the cumulative advance of the law--led relentlessly, inevitably, to the Supreme Court and the final showdown. And Kluger lays bare the disagreements and intense and highly personal convictions of the nine Justices, showing above all how Chief Justice Earl Warren, new to the Court but old in the ways of politics, achieved the impossible--a unanimous decision.

Richard Kluger has added a new final chapter for this anniversary edition published 50 years after the Brown v. Board of Education decision, showing how the issues covered in Simple Justice have evolved since the book was first published in 1976. less
