"An important contribution to legal history."--"Choice"

"[McMahon] argues that Roosevelt worked to advance the civil rights cause through the two institutionalmeans he had at his disposal in the face of entrenched segregationist power in Congress. These were the presidency itself, which FDR consistently sought to strengthen at Congress's expense, and his executive ability to nominate judges to the federal bench. McMahon's treatment of both is skillful, as he adds innovative use of evidence to theoretical tools developed in political science."
--Gerard Alexander"Virginia Quarterly Review" (06/01/2004)"
