Most Americans support the elimination of race and gender prejudice and inequality, yet attitudes toward solutions have fluctuated since the civil rights movement began. A heated debate over the explicit use of race- and gender-based categories has taken center stage in the 1990s, and all eyes are on California, a precedent-setting state since establishing its first antidiscrimination policies in 1934 (federal policies followed almost a decade later). Paul Ong's collection of cogent social policy analysis and careful research intervene in these debates with grounded and complex assessments of the present and future of affirmative action. Chapters explore programs and outcomes in higher education, federal and state contracting, public employment, and minority- and women-owned businesses.
