About the Author
Edited by Gary Orfield and Edward Miller
This may be the most important book in higher education today. At a time in which affirmative action is under siege, this volume offers the facts--research on the consequences of repealing affirmative action, and urgently needed, workable alternatives for maintaining diversity on campus. It is a must read for anyone who cares about or is responsible for the future of America's colleges and universities. Arthur Levine, President, Teachers College, Columbia University"

Its great value is to bring facts into what has become a sterile and abstract ideological debate, fueled by political appeals to those who feel threatened by minority groups. I hope it is widely read. Burke Marshall, Professor, Yale Law School, Former Assistant Attorney General for Civil Rights"
