Amazon.com Product Description (ISBN 0300031149, Paperback)

A provocative examination of school desegregation in America and how it does-and does not-succeed. "In this powerful tract on school desegregation, Jennifer Hochschild formulates the most searching challenge to the theory of incrementalism that I have come across in recent years." -David Braybrooke "A comprehensive synthesis of what is known about the processes of school desegregation and a powerful policy-oriented argument on a subject whose crucial significance Americans have been unable to wish away." -Paul E. Peterson, Brookings Institution "A well-written, insightful survey and analysis of the pattern of school desegregation in American society since the Supreme Court's Brown decisions and a first-rate analysis of the implementation of public policy in the US, with perceptive remarks on incrementalism as a method of change."-Choice "The New American Dilemma is policy analysis as it should be done, thorough in its consideration of evidence and bold in its examination of fundamental issues of political practice and social theory."-Clarence N. Stone, Ethics "The New American Dilemma challenges almost all positions cherished by liberals and leftists, blacks and whites, including gradualism, democratic participation and ethnic solidarity. Because of that alone, The New American Dilemma is invaluable." -Richard H. King, Journal of American Studies "A solid contribution to the literature on desegregation. . . . . This thought-provoking book provides an excellent perspective on the thirty years of desegregation since Brown." -Mary Jo Newborn, Michigan Law Review
