Brown v. Board of Education: A Civil Rights Milestone and Its Troubled Legacy - James T. Patterson Patterson's book is a short, informative look at the Brown decision, one that sets it into the context of its times and examines its impact -- and limits -- over the half-century that followed. Though there are more detailed studies of the decision, Patterson's book is a fine starting point for anyone seeking an introduction to the subject.
