Morton J. Horwitz, The Jurisprudence of Brown and the Dilemmas of Liberalism, 14 Harv, C.R.-C.L. L. Rev. 599 (1979).

Abstract: Discusses ways in which the Brown decision challenged the liberal concept of judicial restraint and the idea that law simply reflects social forces. Considers the constitutional role of the Supreme Court, particularly in addressing social and economic inequalities among races and classes rather than among individuals.
