This is the first study to separate men, women, blacks, and whites to analyze how they get top jobs. It presents evidence to support the thesis that equal employment opportunity laws stopped short of ensuring equal access to jobs for women and minorities, and it exposes a national employment structure that results in preferential treatment for white males.

Hudson's book has brought to the forefront some of the complexities of racial and gender bias in modern industrial society...(It) highlights the inequity of the current selection procedure for school superintendents. At the same time, it contributes toa theoretical formulation that addresses the issue of equity for all occupations. -- Eugene Litwak, Professor of Sociology, Columbia University
I have never seen a book on school administration that is so open and forthright in telling the true facts about prejudice in hiring and promotion...This is a superb treatment of a difficult topic. -- Rosella Linskie, Professor Emeritus, University of Nevada, Reno
This is an important book with serious implications for public policy in education. -- Dr. Beverly Caffee Glenn, former Dean, School of Education, Howard University
At last! A much needed document that will help us understand the process and what happens to women and minorities. Congratulations!> -- Effie H. Jones, Ed.D., American Association of School Administrators
We owe a debt of gratitude to Dr. Mildred J. Hudson, an African-American scholar, for uncovering new forms of employment discrimination that prevent Blacks, women and other minorities from getting top jobs. Dr. Hudson has blazed a trail in this study by putting to rest the concept of 'reverse discrimination'. -- Sondra Kathryn Wilson, Executive Director, The James Weldon Johnson Foundation
