Epstein has convinced me…that the abuses of the anti-discrimination laws are so intimately connected with misconceptions in the laws themselves that any benefits from them will always be far outweighed by the harm they do.—Harry V. Jaffa, The Wall Street Journal

Forbidden Grounds covers not only laws on racial discrimination but also sex discrimination, age discrimination and disability discrimination. Never has the whole range of anti-discrimination laws been subjected to such a thorough and penetrating critique. No one who writes on this subject again can be taken seriously if he [or she] does not confront the analysis presented here by Epstein.—Thomas Sowell, Forbes
