    Baum (urban studies and planning, U. of Maryland) recounts the history of Baltimore school desegregation and how the free choice policy, which made integration voluntary, failed to desegregate schools and serves as a way to understand American problems in dealing with race in public policy. He examines the liberal thinking behind the views of school officials and city residents on desegregation, creating the ineffective policy and ignoring race in the process. He includes discussion of policies before 1954, why few families chose racially mixed schools, the roles of civil rights activists, and court and federal action.
