With Liberty for Some was a 1999 Robert F. Kennedy Distinguished Honors recipient, a distinction granted to books that "faithfully and forcefully [reflect] Robert Kennedy’s purposes – his concern for the poor and the powerless, his struggle for honest and even-handed justice, his conviction that a decent society must assure all young people a fair chance, and his faith that a free democracy can act to remedy disparities of power and opportunity."
