Inhaltsangabe: The foremost autorities on race relations in the armed forces recount the previously untold success story of how the U.S. Army became the most integrated institution in America. Charles C. Moskos and John Sibley Butler observe that the Army is the only place in America where blacks routinely boss around whites, and in this book they lay out the path by which the Army has promoted excellence across racial lines, while also showing how this military model can be adapted to fit the needs of civilian society. The Army way offers hope for our nation in a troubled time, and by following its example, Americans of all races can truly be all that we can be.
Rezension: Colin Powell did not become chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff in 1989 because of a quota. He earned his spot at the top. And he is not the only black American to have made a successful career out of the U.S. Army. In fact, no other institution in American life has done a better job of creating opportunity for blacks. Authors Moskos and Butler explain and endorse the Army's "supply-side" affirmative action, with its dedication to non-discrimination and belief that remedial training can open doors better than quotas or lowered standards.
