The Retreat from Race Asian-American Admissions and Racial Politics by Dana Y Takagi

The Retreat from Race Asian-American Admissions and Racial Politics


The Retreat from Race Asian-American Admissions and Racial Politics by Dana Y Takagi

By examining the debate over Asian-American admissions at such universities as Stanford, Harvard, and Princeton, Takagi explains important developments in the politics of race. Her central argument is that the controversial admissions policies facilitate a subtle but important shift away from racial and toward class preferences in affirmative action procedures. This complex and sensitive subject is carefully analyzed, and will help readers understand the intricacies of university policy and the politics of admissions. --Library Journal
