A Dubious Expediency: How Race Preferences Damage Higher Education (Hardback)

Pre-order for despatch on publication.


This book will consist of seven or more essays, critical in different ways of racial "diversity" preferences in American higher education. Unlike many more conventional books on the subject, which are essentially apologies for racial reverse discrimination, this volume forthrightly exposes the corrosive effects of identity politics on college and university life.
