small_nolongerseperate Thomas J. EspenshadeAgainst the backdrop of today's increasingly multicultural society, are America's elite colleges admitting and succeessfully educating a diverse student body?

Thomas Espenshade, professor of sociology at Princeton University, pulls back the curtain on the selective college experience and takes a rigorous and comprehensive look at how race and social class impact application and admission, enrollment, and student life on campus.
