 About the Book 

This short, readable book deals with a problem of the greatest importance: how, if at all, can liberal-democratic reform lead to racial equality in the United States? The method of reform we have chosen is to change the rules of behavior, assuming that if we require equal treatment for blacks, substantive equality will follow. In a formal analysis based on the relation between a rule and a result, Dorn shows that our assumption is wrong.
