"Affirmative action" in the USA and "reservation policies" in India are arguably the two most important national instances of positive discrimination in favor of historically disadvantaged racial/ethnic minority groups. This impressive book utilizes a cost-benefit framework to develop a general model for the comparative analysis positive discrimination policies and reviews systematically the available empirical evidence on the consequences of those policies in admissions to higher education institutions in both the USA and India. As an exercise in the application of cost-benefit analysis, this book is an important contribution. It is as a scholarly contribution to one of the most topical and important issues facing the world today, however, that this book really makes its mark--a truly indispensible read for students and academics involved in labor and discrimination as well as those with a general interest in affirmative action.
