While Wolf-Devine finds that none of these arguments justifies adopting affirmative action, she diverges from most opponents of the policy by arguing that some circumstances make affirmative action appropriate. Analyzing the cultural, economic, and political contexts in which affirmative action has been debated, she suggests ways to get around the current impasse over the issue without abandoning a commitment to social justice."@en ;
