Editorial Reviews


"Critiques the creation and evolution of civil rights policy during the last thirty years. . . . Belz successfully integrates the tale into a piece of sophisticated scholarship and an intelligible whole. . . . [M]andatory reading."

—Mary R. Mattingly, Social Science Quarterly

“Belz (University of Maryland) offers a detailed, scholarly, and highly critical analysis of affirmative action since the early 1960s. He argues that while Title VII of the 1964 Civil Rights Act was intended to provide individuals with equal employment opportunites without regard for race, over time, practices by public and private employers that benefit certain groups on the basis of race or gender have become widespread… The book is timely in light of recent Supreme Court decisions that increase the burden of proof faced by employees alleging employment discrimination… Recommended for upper-division undergraduates and graduate students.” 

—J. A. Melusky, Choice
