Making Sense Of Desegregation And Affirmative Action, William W. Van Alstyne

Faculty Publications

This review discusses J. Harvie Wilkinson's From Brown to Bakke and its companion work, Counting by Race: Equality from the Founding Fathers to Bakke and Weber written by Terry Eastland and William J. Bennett. Wilkinson's work is found to maintain a narrow focus on its specific subject of school desegregation and the Supreme Court, but it suffers from over-exaggeration and an abundance of adornment in his writing style. Counting is a provocative piece that asserts the position that the Constitution is still not color-blind, despite what many have proposed, and makes an authoritative argument for such a claim.
