Very Good
2006 Hard cover Very good in very good dust jacket. Unmarked, tight copy, few creases on page corners. Just slight wear on jacket. 187 p.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher

“It is worth noting that one of the many positive things that this book has to recommend for itself is a very clear writing style that makes complex legal and social science concepts accessible to a wide array of audiences.”
-The Law and Politics Book Review

,

“It’s law-focused and part of an academic series, but its style and subject matter make it relevant to a broad audience.”
-Pittsburgh Post-Gazette

,

“A must read for students of bias, racism, discrimination, and privilege. Lu-in Wang employs readable prose and compelling examples to elucidate these complex issues. Her cutting-edge exposition, especially in the context of health care, offers the reader a deeper understanding of the unseen forces that govern daily life.”
-Stephanie M. Wildman,professor of law and director, Santa Clara University School of Law Center for Social Justice

“Does a powerful job of explaining why and how discrimination still plays such a strong role in our society. Like all of the best legal scholarship, this insightful book uses an unexpected, fresh conception to explore an age-old, stubborn problem. The result is a new understanding of both our legal structure and the society in which we live. A strong, helpful contribution to the debate on discrimination, its causes, and the damage it does.”
-David A. Harris,E.N. Balk Professor of Law and Values, University of Toledo College of Law

“[The book is] law-focused and part of an academic series, but its style and subject matter make it relevant to a broad audience.”
-Emporia Gazette
