Summary
"In this new, revised and enlarged edition, Discrimination and Disparities goes beyond its analysis--in the first edition--of the sources of disparities and the different kinds of discrimination. It deals with undeniable fact of gross disparities in opportunity, without succumbing to the 'social justice' vision of our time--a vision with demonstrably false assumptions, and solutions that may not even be possible, in any comprehensive and sustainable sense. Instead, some more modest but feasible options are examined."--Dust jacket
