The Evolution of a Social Contract: The University of California before and in the Aftermath of Affirmative Action.
Douglass, John Aubrey
European Journal of Education, v34 n4 p393-412 Dec 1999
Analyzes the history of affirmative action admissions at the University of California. Focuses on two themes: first, the historical development of UC admissions; second, the debate over affirmative action. Considers problems in balancing the social contract with the idea of a meritocracy, race and affirmative action as a counterbalance, and the political backlash to use of racial preferences. (DB)
