Overview

Holzer (public policy, Georgetown University) and Neumark (economics, Public Policy Institute of California) collect journal articles from 1976 through 2000 on affirmative action, narrowly construed as targeting contractors and broadly construed as encompassing many anti- discrimination efforts. Articles look at affirmative action in the labor market, in education, and in contracting, and consider who implements affirmative action and how they do it. Selections include classic papers that make a major contribution to the analysis of affirmative action and articles that highlight recent research. Papers are grouped in sections on theoretical evaluations of affirmative action, redistributive effects, and efficiency/performance effects of affirmative action.
