The constitutional logic of affirmative action by Ronald Jerry Fiscus( Book )
1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 40 libraries worldwide
"Few issues are as mired in rhetoric and controversy as is affirmative action. This book cuts to the heart of the issue with precision and eloquence. A compelling and rigorously reasoned argument for a constitutional rationale of affirmative action, it will enhance future debate by clarifying the moral and legal ramifications of this complex, politically charged subject."--BOOK JACKET. "Ronald J. Fiscus begins by drawing a distinction between compensatory and distributive justice. He argues that compensatory justice, although it is the principle underlying efforts to provide remedies in specific, individual cases of discrimination, does not provide an appropriate basis for justifying broader programs of affirmative action."--BOOK JACKET. "Fiscus proposes instead that affirmative action programs can be justified by a theory of distributive justice, which, he argues, avoids the pitfalls that trouble current approaches to affirmative action. His argument begins with the stipulated assumption of equality at birth. Under that assumption, there would be a distribution of opportunity proportionate to society's racial and gender composition. In a society free of all discrimination, for instance, if 20 percent of the population were black, then 20 percent of all jobs, promotions, college acceptances, etc., would go to blacks. Any deviation from this distribution could only be attributed to discrimination."--BOOK JACKET. "Emphasizing race rather than gender (to which his argument also applies), Fiscus focuses on the argument accepted by the Supreme Court in reverse discrimination cases, that whites, particularly white males, are "innocent victims" of affirmative action plans. He argues that proportional quotas do not produce "innocent victims" because those holding positions in excess of what proportionality would provide are not entitled to them. Fiscus argues for quotas--but only quotas that are proportionate to the racial composition of society. Disproportional quotas are not acceptable in his theory of distributive justice."--BOOK JACKET. "The author focuses upon the Supreme Court's affirmative action rulings from Bakke (1976) through Croson (1989), explaining and analyzing these cases extensively. More recent rulings and the 1990s battles over quotas are discussed in an epilogue by Stephen L.Wasby, who edited the book after Fiscus's death in 1990."--BOOK JACKET. "While presenting a lucid and persuasive case for affirmative action, The Constitutional Logic of Affirmative Action also provides a clear overview of the issues surrounding this difficult topic. It is a passionate, yet balanced plea for an intellectual understanding of an issue that often sparks highly rhetorical and emotional debate."--BOOK JACKET
