Stock Description, May Not Reflect Item
At a time when quotas and preferences are under attack nationwide, Barbara Bergmann courageously show that without the help of affirmative action America will never be able to attain a truly race-blind and sex-blind society, for it is naive to imagine that the abolition of affirmative action will lead to a system based solely on ability. Women and minorities do in fact need assistance in cases where prejudice or habit leads to preference for white males in all openings. Free of the posturing that has so often degraded this debate, "In Defense of Affirmative Action" is a clarion call to maintain affirmative action as a just and indispensable solution to a chronic problem in American society.
