In Defense of Affirmative Action


Write The First Customer Review

Distinguished feminist and economist Barbara Bergmann acknowledges that affirmative action does indeed force employers to "play a quotas game". However, in a compelling study, Bergmann shows how 50 large corporations differ radically in how much integration they have achieved, and she presents abundant evidence that affirmative action, where systematically applied, has undone injustice and provided real economic benefit.
