`The well-written and informative introduction provides the context for the selected writings and a basis on which to evaluate the contents . . . This volume is likely to be most useful for the academic or research scholar who wants to get an assessment of the state of the affirmative action research in one place . . . it puts a wide array of literature at your fingertips.' -- Margaret C. Simms, Feminist Economics `I would recommend this book to serious scholars and to graduate students interested in studying affirmative action or employment equity.' -- Harish C. Jain, Relations Industrielles/Industrial Relations `Affirmative action programs are a unique social experiment, whose consequences deserve great attention in efforts to help disadvantaged groups. By gathering the best economic studies on affirmative action, this volume offers a valuable antidote to the ideological controversy that too often surrounds the subject. Evidence, not rhetoric, is needed, and here it is in one compendium.' -- Richard Freeman, Harvard University, US
