The Politics of School Desegregation: Comparative Case Studies of Community Structure and Policy-Making.
Crain, Robert L.
An analysis of the political process by which school systems can be desegregated rests on thepremise that school desegregation is a community decision. The process is documented in Part I by studies of eight non-Southern, big city school systems. Part II presents an analysis of school policy-making. Part III is devoted to desegregation in New Orleans, and Part IV describes the community and the civil rights movement in both Northern and Southern cities. The final section discusses the research implications for the future of school desegregation and for other studies of community politics. (NH)
