CHOICE Review

Peller (Georgetown Univ.) provides a nuanced historical analysis of the simultaneous evolution of liberal integrationism and Black Nationalism among African Americans, an assessment of the impacts on mainstream American perspectives of these movements, and an investigation of the complicated relationships between integrationism and nationalism across more than 100 years of recent US history. After evaluating the "formal" assessments leading to the Plessy v. Ferguson decision versus the "functional" assessments used to reach the Brown v. Board of Education decision, and investigating how de jure approaches were replaced by the de facto approaches in relation to discrimination cases, Peller calls for a postmodernist/historicist approach to address the widespread social inaction among white Americans as perceptions of "cultural deprivation" have shifted to a focus on cultural differences and multiculturalism. This book would be useful to students of pre-law/law, history, history of education, African studies, and African American studies. Further, if used by education students, James Banks and Cherry Banks's Multicultural Education (7th ed., 2009) would offer approaches on multicultural classrooms ranging from colorblindness to multicultural social justice standpoints. Summing Up: Highly recommended. Upper-division undergraduate, graduate, and research collections. C. L. Lalonde D'Youville College
