Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal
YA-- A thought-provoking, demanding anthology of essays by noted philosophers, lawyers, historians, and sociologists who examine theories of behavior that might account for hatred and prejudice. Articles reprinted from Nation and The New Republic consider issues on college campuses that deal with freedom of speech, multiculturalism, and ``politically correct'' speech. Solutions to bigotry are considered in moral, legal, and sociological terms; and readers are left with an understanding of the complexity of the problem. Students of debate, history, civics, and conflict resolution who are practiced in critical thinking will find this a useful and sobering resource.-- Jackie Gropman, Richard Byrd Library, Springfield, VA
