No Longer Separate, Not Yet Equal:
Race and Class in Elite College Admission and Campus Life
Thomas J. Espenshade & Alexandria Walton Radford

Book Description | Table of Contents
Chapter 1 [in PDF format]


"Espenshade and Radford have produced a highly valuable book packed with useful race-based information relating to admission, academic performance, and ethnic group interaction on elite college campuses. . . . The data offers sound arguments for the need to not only continue race-sensitive affirmative action both in college and graduate school admissions but also in the workplace."--Journal of Blacks in Higher Education

"The thoughtful work of Espenshade and Radford represented in this significant volume should be just the beginning of the next phase of the ongoing national conversation about he role of higher education in providing equality of opportunity and social mobility. This book provides a useful framework for additional research and policy development."--Jonathan Alger, Journal of College and University Law

"Espenshade and Radford have produced the most comprehensive and best study yet of admissions and race relations in America's leading colleges and universities."--Steven Brint, American Journal of Education


"This original and important book contributes to our understanding of college admissions, as well as the interracial social experiences and growing economic inequality in selective higher education today. Particularly interesting are the simulations of what racial and class compositions might be under different types of admissions criteria, including race-blind and class-sensitive conditions."--Caroline Hodges Persell, New York University

"I am impressed by the depth and breadth of this well-written and accessible book--it represents an important contribution to the literature about how race and class affect college admissions and student life."--Elizabeth A. Duffy, Head Master, The Lawrenceville School
