Sinopsis:

Book by Polikoff Alexander

Críticas:

"This is an inspiring and fascinating book. The story of Alex Polikoff and his forty-year crusade to bring the constitutional promise of equality to public housing is dramatic evidence that lawyers--and the law--can still be a force for progress in the United States." --Scott Turow "Somewhere along the way, we lost sight of the dream of integration. Not Alex Polikoff. In "Waiting for Gautreaux" he tells the compelling story of his personal quest for fairness and openness in housing. Both moving and informative this is history as it should be. Polikoff is a modern-day hero." --Alex Kotlowitz" "With the same thoroughness and tenacity he demonstrated in the lawsuit, Alex Polikoff traces the ups and downs of the Gautreaux litigation. If you want to understand the past, present, and future of public housing in this country, you need to read "Waiting for Gautreaux."" --Abner J. Mikva, Former Chief Judge, U.S. Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit
