Description - Ending Affirmative Action by Terry Eastland

In the 1960s, we resolved as a nation never to judge people by the color of their skin. But today, race-based public policy has once again become the norm, this time under the banner of affirmative action. How, asks Terry Eastland, did such a turnabout take place, and how can we restore colorblind law in America today? In this compelling and powerful book, Eastland lays bare the absurdities and injustices of affirmative action, and presents the strongest case to date for doing away with race-based and gender-based preferencesa ringing call for all Americans to reclaim our nations shared values of equal protection under the law, without reference to race, color, creed, gender, or national origin.
