From Library Journal This collection of essays by historians and a journalist, timed to coincide with the bicentennial of the Bill of Rights, reviews the history of civil rights in America. The essays focus primarily on the 20th century--six of the eight essays address that period directly, and one considers the use of history in contemporary constitutional interpretation. However, altogether the essays cover a scant 128 pages of the volume, the remainder consisting of the Consitution, an extended chronology of cases (most of which are not discussed in the text), and a bibliography. The essays themselves provide a superficial overview of the historical record but offer no new insights. An optional purchase.
