Affirmative Talk, Affirmative Action: A Comparative Study of the Politics of Affirmative Action

Synopsis

Jones' unique comparative case study investigates the reasons for success or failure of affirmative action programs in two Southern communities and offers a recipe for successful race-conscious hiring programs in a detailed, step-by-step approach. The volume identifies, defines, and operationalizes those elements--communications, resources, commitment, political-social conditions, and bureaucratic arrangements--required for the successful execution of any public policy program.
