The Pursuit of Race and Gender Equity in American Academe

Synopsis

This volume examines American attitudes toward affirmative action policies through an extensive study of a national sample of university faculty. The author offers new insights into the competing values in American society which the policy of affirmative action serves to bring into conflict and finds important differences in the perceptions of white males as opposed to those of protected categorical groups in regard to affirmative action. The analysis also includes an extended treatment of the impact of recent Supreme Court decisions on affirmative action.
