Bruce P. Lapenson: Affirmative Action and the Meanings of Merit

My cousin, Bruce P. Lapenson, a member of the faculty of Temple University in Philadelphia, is the author of Affirmative Action and the Meanings of Merit.  The book can be previewed on Google Books at:

Check it out.   It's a good read!  I'm sure Vernon Jordan would recommend it.

The Meanings of Merit? I'd like to write a book titled The Merits of Meaning -- because a lot of people don't get what I mean.
