Review Meyer's book ought to be in every library in the country. Rather it ought to be out of every library, in constant use, by lawyers, judges, laymen, preachers, teachers, students of all ages, by all Americans concerned about the realization and preservation of individual freedoms and their constitutional guarantees. (Dudley T. Cornish The Midwest Quarterly )

A book about the Fourteenth Ammendment that is both lively and scholarly is rare in itself. This book is much more than that. It recaptures lost moments in American history, penetrates the social conflicts behind legal arguments, and does all this with clarity and style. (Howard Zinn, Author of A People's History of the United States and Professor Emeritus of Political Science, Boston University )
