Description

In a fiercely provocative book that will generate debate for years to come, Bernstein shows how multicultural orthodoxy has created a highly lucrative bureaucracy, even as it shortchanged the very people it is meant to benefit. "Graceful and lucid. . . . reading the book is arguably a civic duty."--Boston Globe.
