Summary

Racial preference is nothing new, argues Tim J. Wise in this compelling exploration of race, privilege, and education. This book recasts the debate over today's controversial, race-based affirmative action policies. Wise deftly demonstrates that the American educational system has always been complicit in institutionalized racism and racial preference.
