Publishers Weekly

In June 2003, the U.S. Supreme Court struck down the University of Michigan's undergraduate admissions policies as racially discriminatory, but upheld a separate admissions program in place at the university's law school. The authors here get behind Michigan's arguments. Gurin, professor emerita at Michigan's department of psychology, presents social science research disputed in court. Lehman, former dean of the law school, traces the evolving language of diversity. Lewis, dean of Michigan's Rackham Graduate School, argues that history remains a factor. Michigan's president, Mary Sue Coleman, provides an afterword. (Apr.) Copyright 2004 Reed Business Information.
