Re: "Brown vs. Board, Govt. vs. People: The Curious Course Of The Desegregation Wars" by F. Roger Devlin

Dr. Devlin's review of Raymond Wolters book Race and Education is a good piece. However, I think you miss a very important aspect of the desegregation decision. It would never have flown if people had not thought it applied only to the South. The American majority was perfectly willing to sacrifice Southern whites to its own self-righteousness.

Dr. Wilson is a retired professor of history at the University of South Carolina and a contributing editor of Chronicles: A Magazine of American Culture. He is the author of From Union to Empire: Essays in the Jeffersonian Tradition and Defending Dixie: Essays in Southern History and Culture and editor of the twenty-eight volume set of collected papers of John C. Calhoun.
