In the 1960s, we resolved as a nation never to judge people by the color of their skin. But today, race-based public policy has once again become the norm, this time under the banner of affirmative action. How, asks Terry Eastland, did such a turnabout take place, and how can we restore colorblind law in America today? In this compelling and powerful book, Eastland lays bare the absurdities and injustices of affirmative action, and presents the strongest case to date for doing away with race-based and gender-based preferences—a ringing call for all Americans to reclaim our nation's shared values of equal protection under the law, without reference to race, color, creed, gender, or national origin.

Racial preferences are one of the most controversial issues in American public policy. Terry Eastland offers a compelling argument for dismantling them entirely. In this cogent analysis--better presented here than in several books holding similar views--Eastland shows how bureaucratic and judicial rulings transformed the civil rights movement's noble ideal of equal opportunity for all individuals into the much more problematic goal of equal results for all groups.About the Author:
Terry Eastland is editor of Forbes MediaCritic and a fellow at the Ethics and Public Policy Center in Washington, D.C.
