Affirmative action programs are a unique social experiment, whose consequences deserve great attention in efforts to help disadvantaged groups. By gathering the best economic studies on affirmative action, this volume offers a valuable antidote to the ideological controversy that too often surrounds the subject. Evidence, not rhetoric, is needed, and here it is in one compendium.’ – Richard Freeman, Harvard University, US
