The Shape of the River: Long-Term Consequences of Considering Race in College and University Admissions - This book studies the academic, employment and personal histories of more than 45,000 students of all races who attended academically selective universities between the 1970s and the early 1990s. The authors argue that these colleges and universities have been highly successful in using race-sensitive admissions policies to advance important educational goals that also benefit society as a whole. Available for purchase from Princeton University Press. (William G. Bowen and Derek Bok, Princeton University Press, 1998)...
