Not So "Simple Justice"
Urban, Wayne
History of Education Quarterly, v44 n1 p133-139 Spr 2004
In this article, the author provides his analyses on Richard Kluger's "Simple Justice," a book that portrays the major players involved in the landmark "Brown" decision. He comments generally on Kluger and highlights a few interesting aspects of his analysis, including his interpretation of the actions of then clerk and later justice and still later Chief Justice William Rehnquist and his interpretations of the value of historians as expert witnesses. Finally, on the basis of his rereading of Kluger, he reconsiders his initial inability to find something important to say about desegregation and arrive at what he hopes is a meaningful conclusion that can be related to further historical work on the topic.
