Shalom, Stephen R.
Journal of Blacks in Higher Education, n25 p106-108 Fall 1999
"America in Black and White: One Nation Indivisible: Race in Modern America," by Stephan and Abigail Thernstrom, has become important in the movement to abolish affirmative action in higher education. Suggests the book seriously misinterprets and misuses evidence to make its case, refuting specific results the book cites related to enrollment, graduation, dropout rates, and test scores. (SM)
