The publication of Herrnstein and Murray's The Bell Curve enraged readers with its contention that certain groups of children are genetically unable to learn because of their race and, therefore, unworthy of the educational attention and financial resources that flow from governments. In Measured Lies, the first thoughtful and reasoned reading of The Bell Curve, Joe Kincheloe, Shirley Steinberg and Aaron Gresson have assembled a group of the most well-respected educators and social theorists writing today to provide responses to Herrnstein and Murray's racial and intellectual agenda: Henry Giroux, Michael Apple, Theresa Perry, Houston Baker, Christine Sleeter, Sander Gilman, William F. Pinar, Deborah Britzman, Donaldo Macedo, Stephen Haymes, Ronald Rochon, Peter McLaren, Ladi Semali, Cameron McCarthy, Yvonna S. Lincoln, Molefi Asante, Joyce King, Sonja Nieto, Warren Crichlow, Linda Meyers and Francine Hultgren. In addition to these original essays, Measured Lies contains interviews with Paolo Freires, Ellen Willis, and Stanley Aronowitz.
