Abstract:

On June 12, 1995, by a narrow five-to-four margin, the U.S. Supreme Court brought an end to affirmative action as it had been practiced in the United States for over a quarter of a century. The End of Affirmative Action explains the tremendous impact this decision, in the case of Adarand v. Pena, will have on society in the years to come. Since its inception, affirmative action has been called the most divisive issue in American. Yet those who discuss it often talk at cross-purposes because of confusion over what it actually means. In this book, the author discusses the many levels of affirmative action and pins down its intricacies. He presents the results of two decades of social-science research, most of which has never before been discussed in the national media. The End of Affirmative Action is a must read for all who want to know why affirmative action ended and what we must do in the future to fulfill the dream of a society free at last from the burden of racial conflict.
