Anthony Kronman’s Education’s End reviewed

Jacob Laksin reviews Professor Anthony Kronman’s new book here for City Journal.
I haven’t read the book yet, but from Laksin’s review, it appears that Kronman has hit perhaps a double, but not a home run. One weakness is that the book repeats the usual defense of affirmative action, namely that it atones for past wrongs, but it doesn’t and can’t do that. Consequently, Kronman doesn’t see all the damage that is done on campuses owing to the mania for “diversity.”
