Farewell to Preferences?
Thernstrom, Stephan
Public Interest, n130 p34-49 Win 1998
Uses the experience of the University of California in abandoning affirmative action admissions policies to explore the real consequences of the removal of minority preferences in law and medical schools. Although numbers of racial minorities are reduced in the short run, it is argued that the change will benefit students with solid qualifications. (SLD)
