Summary:
In this book Robert Leslie Fisher contends that - thanks to misguided university and government policies - the US has created a 'science elite' that does not represent the demographics of the nation. Drawing on sample data from 1300 male and female respondents from white, black, Hispanic and Asian students, Fisher shows how the culture of graduate schools in science and engineering sees women, black and Hispanic students as outsiders and deprives these budding scientists and research engineers of the collaborators they need to succeed in their careers.
