The end of affirmative action : where do we go from here? by Darien A McWhirter( Book )

3 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 631 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

On June 12, 1995, by a narrow five-to-four margin, the U.S. Supreme Court brought an end to affirmative action as it had been practiced in the United States for over a quarter of a century. The End of Affirmative Action explains the tremendous impact this decision, in the case of Adarand v. Pena, will have on society in the years to come. Since its inception, affirmative action has been called the most divisive issue in American. Yet those who discuss it often talk at cross-purposes because of confusion over what it actually means. In this book, the author discusses the many levels of affirmative action and pins down its intricacies. He presents the results of two decades of social-science research, most of which has never before been discussed in the national media. The End of Affirmative Action is a must read for all who want to know why affirmative action ended and what we must do in the future to fulfill the dream of a society free at last from the burden of racial conflict

The Separation of Church and State. Exploring the Constitution Series by Darien A McWhirter( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This textbook on the separation of church and state continues the "Exploring the Constitution Series," which introduces important areas of constitutional law. Intended to serve either as a reference work, a supplement to a standard textbook, or as the textbook for a course, this volume covers the constitutional issues of prayer in public schools, government support for private religious schools, the use of religious symbols by government, the right of school children to refuse to recite the Pledge of Allegiance, the rights of conscientious objectors, and the appeal to religion as an excuse for breaking the law. The introduction elucidates the historical background for the separation of church and state with a discussion of John Locke, Baron de Montesquieu, and colonial America. Each substantial chapter on a constitutional issue explains the setting of the debate, provides opinions and dissents from several Supreme Court cases, and offers discussion questions. The book closes with a glossary of legal terms, suggestions for further readings, and two appendices containing the United States Constitution and the Bill of Rights. (Jd)
