The Detroit school busing case : Milliken v. Bradley and the controversy over desegregation by Joyce A Baugh( Book )

2 editions published in 2011 in English and held by 470 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Overview: In the wake of Brown v. Board of Education, racial equality in American public education appeared to have a bright future. But for many that brightness dimmed considerably following the Supreme Court's decision in Milliken v. Bradley (1974), which emerged from Detroit's efforts to use cross-district busing to desegregate its schools and was the first such case to originate outside the South. In its controversial 5-4 decision, the Supreme ruled that, since there was no evidence that the suburban school districts had deliberately engaged in a policy of segregation, the lower court's remedy of busing school children across municipal lines was "wholly impermissible" and not justified by Brown--which the Court said could only address de jure, not de facto segregation. In this first book-length account of the case, Joyce Baugh provides a richly detailed account of how and why Milliken came about and analyzes its subsequent impact on both civil rights jurisprudence and public education in American cities
The real Clarence Thomas : confirmation veracity meets performance reality by Christopher E Smith( Book )

The Rehnquist court and criminal justice by Christopher E Smith( )

1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

By analyzing the perspectives and influential decisions of individual justices on the Rehnquist Court (1986-2005), this volume reveals how a divided Supreme Court limited the scope of rights affecting criminal justice without fulfilling conservatives' goal of eliminating foundational concepts established during the Warren Court era. The era's generally conservative Supreme Court preserved rights in several contexts because individual justices do not necessarily view all constitutional rights issues through a simple, consistent philosophical
