Dean and Professor of Law, U.C. Berkeley, Boalt Hall School of Law -
Ancheta takes on a profoundly challenging topic of fundamental importance - the interaction of law and social science in the context of controversies over equality - and crafts an elegant presentation that can be appreciated on multiple levels. It is accessible to non-lawyers, but at the same time rich in sophisticated insights for scholars at the frontier. And he builds a bridge between intellectual cultures, helping scientists understand how their work is understood and used (or not) by the law, and helping those in the law better appreciate the uses and limits of science. This book will be a classic. I wish I could buy stock in it.
