Affirmative action and minority enrollments in medical and law schools by Susan Welch( )

9 editions published between 1998 and 2001 in English and held by 1,666 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"In this study, Susan Welch and John Gruhl look at what impact policies developed in the wake of the landmark 1978 United States Supreme Court decision, Regents of the University of California v. Bakke, have had on admissions. The Bakke decision legitimized the use of race as one of several factors that could be considered in admissions decisions, while forbidding the use of quotas. Using the results of a survey of admissions officers for law and medical schools and national enrollment data, the authors give us the first analysis of the real impact that the Bakke decision and affirmative action programs had on enrollments in medical and law schools. The authors then review affirmative action cases and analyze the current debate over affirmative action policy in light of Bakke's effects and in light of the changing nature of American demographics and politics." "This book will appeal to scholars of race and gender in political science, sociology, and education as well as those interested in the study of affirmative action policies."--Jacket

Race and place : race relations in an American city by Susan Welch( Book )

11 editions published between 2001 and 2011 in English and held by 349 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"A striking but little recognized change in race relations during the past two decades has been the declining levels of racial segregation in most of America's major metropolitan areas. Slowly, more areas of American cities are beginning to have both black and white residents. An integral component of this decline in residential segregation has been the large-scale but under-publicized movement of blacks to the suburbs. This book focuses on the impact of these changes on the attitudes and behavior of African Americans and whites. Will whites' attitudes about blacks and blacks' attitudes about whites change if they are living in integrated neighborhoods rather than apart from one another? Are black suburbanites more likely to share the views of their fellow white suburbanites or of their fellow African Americans in the central city? Will residential integration and new patterns of race in the suburbs break down divisions between blacks and whites in their views of local public services? These are the central questions of this book"--

Understanding American government( Recording )

4 editions published between 2003 and 2007 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

While covering the basic foundations and features of American government, this text also moves beyond the nuts and bolts to explain why and how important features of government have evolved, their impact on government and individuals, and why these features are controversial (if they are) and worth learning. More than just narrating facts and current issues, [it] attempts to leave the students with an understanding of the "why."--Http://www.thomsonedu.com
