Affirmative action is dead : long live affirmative action by Faye J Crosby( Book )

5 editions published in 2004 in English and held by 916 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Affirmative action is a much-debated policy, in employment as well as in education, in the Supreme Court as well as on the street. Yet as this book clearly shows, affirmative action is both sensible and effective, differing little from many other government programs that evoke no controversy. Why don't Americans wholeheartedly support affirmative action?" "This book answers this important question. It examines explanations put forth by social scientists, finding various degrees of truth in most of them. Some situate the problem in the policy itself, suggesting that affirmative action functions as a governmentally sanctioned form of reverse racism or sexism, or that is is ineffective or socially disruptive. Such explanations may sound plausible, but they are incorrect. Other explanations locate the problem in the people who react to the policy, citing studies that document the links between ignorance, prejudice, and opposition to affirmative action. Yet even well-informed egalitarian people sometimes oppose affirmative action." "So what is the problem? The book concludes by proposing that the American failure to endorse wholeheartedly what is a fair and an effective policy arises, ironically, from Americans' infatuation with justice. Smitten with the concept of merit, we are perturbed by a policy that invites us to recognize the complications of social justice."--Jacket

Affirmative action in perspective by Fletcher A Blanchard( Book )

9 editions published in 1989 in 3 languages and held by 370 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Racism and sexism remain prevalent in societies today. Based on this proven premise, the authors of Affirmative Action in Perspective maintain that a policy of equal opportunity as practiced in America is not a feasible, realistic solution to the "legacy of racial and sexual discrimination". Drs. Blanchard and Crosby have edited a volume which clearly displays their conviction that affirmative action as a policy has the potential to establish a society more equitable than the society we know now. Distinguished contributors to this volume discuss the policy from a level of definition to actual case studies and further, to the theoretical examination of the justice of affirmative action. Throughout the book the urgency of questioning current policies is evident; so too is the need for basic understanding of the realities of injustice which draw the line between the advantaged and the disadvantaged

Deprivation and Deservingness: Distributive Justice at Home and at Work by Faye J Crosby( Book )

1 edition published in 1979 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

An exploration of interpersonal justice suggests some connections among relative deprivation theory, justice theory, and depression research. Distinctions between home life and work life are necessary in thinking about fairness, deservingness, and deprivation. A survey of over 400 adults explored the extent to which men and women feel deprived about their jobs and home lives and the extent to which they think they are not receiving what they deserve at work and at home. An examination was made of two special subgroups from this survey: 31 employed men and 31 employed women, all married, childless, and with high status jobs. Both men and women felt less deprivation about their home lives than about their work lives. Both men and women felt that the discrepancy between what they deserve to receive and what they actually are receiving is smaller at home than at work. Results suggest gender is a less important variable than the work-home difference. (Nrb)
