about this item
This book challenges the widely held belief in meritocracy—that everyone has an equal chance of success based on individual merit and effort. The book considers non-merit factors such as social connections and discrimination. The fourth edition features new material on the current political climate, a new chapter on marriage and mobility, and more.
