The miner's canary : enlisting race, resisting power, transforming democracy by Lani Guinier( )

19 editions published between 2002 and 2009 in English and held by 2,231 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Like the canary's distress, which alerted miners to poison in the air, issues of race point to conditions in American society that endanger us all. In this pioneering new book, Lani Guinier and Gerald Torres warn us that we ignore race at our peril, and propose a dramatic, hopeful shift in the way we think about race and put it to political use."

The tyranny of the meritocracy : democratizing higher education in America by Lani Guinier( Book )

10 editions published between 2014 and 2016 in English and Undetermined and held by 664 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"Standing on the foundations of America's promise of equal opportunity, our universities purport to "serve as engines of social mobility" and "practitioners of democracy." But as acclaimed scholar and pioneering civil rights advocate Lani Guinier argues, the merit systems that dictate the admissions practices of these institutions are functioning to select and privilege elite individuals rather than create learning communities geared to advance democratic societies. Having studied and taught at schools such as Harvard University, Yale Law School, and the University of Pennsylvania Law School, Guinier has spent years examining the experiences of ethnic minorities at the nation's top institutions of higher education, and here she lays bare the practices that impede the stated missions of these schools. Guinier argues for reformation, not only of the very premises of admissions practices but of the shape of higher education itself, and she offers many examples of new collaborative initiatives that prepare students for engaged citizenship in our increasingly multicultural society."--Publisher information

Lawyer and professor Lani Guinier was born on April 19, 1950. She was raised and educated in New York City. A graduate of Harvard and Yale, Guinier worked in the Civil Rights Division at the U.S. Department of Justice and then headed the voting rights project at the NAACP Legal Defense Fund in the 1980s. Guinier also held a tenured professorship at University of Pennsylvania Law School from 1983 to 1998. Guinier came to public attention in 1993 when President Bill Clinton nominated her to head the civil rights division of the Justice Department. However, Clinton withdrew the nomination following conservative criticism of Guinier’s views on political representation, voting rights and affirmative action. Opponents to her nomination launched a negative press campaign, maligning her law review articles. Then, in 1998, she became the first African American woman to receive tenure at Harvard Law School. In 2004, she wrote a memoir on the controversy and assessing the progress and potential of the Civil Rights Movement
