Summary, etc.: Annotation. Pincus (sociology, U. of Maryland) examines the nature and scope of "reverse discrimination," focusing on the question of whether white males are adversely affected by affirmative action programs. Basing his results on interviews and research, he finds that it is people of color and women who continue to carry the burden of bias. He also explains how the concept of reverse discrimination is primarily a social construct generated by traditional beliefs about race and gender relations.
