Despite this, minority students are adversely affected by racist stereotypes of intellectual inferiority. It provides potent new content to include in the dialog and debate among students, faculty, parents, and policymakers about existing efforts for closing performance and achievement. They show that black and Latino students do not enter college disadvantaged by a lack of self-esteem. Correspondence to: Gokhan Savas, Social Sciences University of Ankara, Turkey.

African Americans and Latinos earn lower grades and drop out of college more often than whites or Asians. In short, this is a book that should be bought and read by every serious student of education. They explain how such factors as neighborhood, family, peer group, and early schooling influence the academic performance of students from differing racial and ethnic origins and differing social classes. Male students are more likely to have negative school behavior and are also more likely to spend less time on homework compared to female students. That understanding—in the area of higher education—has now been given a new foundation in this masterful book by Douglas Massey and his colleagues.

African Americans and Latinos earn lower grades and drop out of college more often than whites or Asians. Presenting important new findings, The Source of the River documents the ongoing power of race to shape the life chances of America's young people, even among the most talented and able. Yet thirty years after deliberate minority recruitment efforts began, we still don't know why. Massey et al have begun to untangle the forces that shape the academic performance of students from various backgrounds and in this way to provide new insights than can guide more informed social policies. Like Bowen and Bok's Shape of the River, it is a landmark book that, in my hopes, will launch a new era of both understanding and remedy. Through a study of national scope, they have exposed many of the root causes of persistent racial inequalities in higher education. In The Shape of the River, William Bowen and Derek Bok documented the benefits of affirmative action for minority students, their communities, and the nation at large.
