Affirmative Action - Good For Everyone Except Students, Faculty, and Administrators

Or so says a recently published study, according to the NY Times. Yeah, yeah, if this study were promoting affirmative action, I would pull out my Dark Force Decoder Ring and be on it like sand in the desert. So OK, I will get to it.

UPDATE: OK, the author is Stanley Rothman, who is mysteriously missing from the directory at Smith College, although Google certainly puts him there. Here is a thought provoking cite:

Mark Snyderman and Stanley Rothman (1986), "Science, Politics and theIQ Controversy." The Public Interest 83 (Spring): 79-97

Another teaser: "The Myth of Black Low Self-Esteem"

And, if your Acrobat reader is working, here is the paper we seek!
