Daniel Golden talked about his book, The Price of Admission: How America’s Ruling Class Buys Its Way into Elite Colleges, and Who Gets Left Outside the Gate, published by Crown. Daniel Golden won a Pulitzer Prize in 2004 for a series of articles on the inner workings of college admissions offices. He argued that while race-based affirmative action policies have received media attention in the U.S., preferences for privileged applicants, such as the children of college donors and celebrities, have been largely ignored. After his presentation he responded to audience members' questions. close

    C-SPAN.org offers links to books featured on the C-SPAN networks to make it simpler for viewers to purchase them. C-SPAN has agreements with retailers that share a small percentage of your purchase price with our network. For example, as an Amazon Associate, C-SPAN earns money from your qualifying purchases. However, C-SPAN only receives this revenue if your book purchase is made using the links on this page.

    Any revenue realized from this program goes into a general account to help fund C-SPAN operations.
