About the Editors

What People are Saying About This

David Horowitz

A frightening look at how the left wing thought-police have invaded one of America's most prestigious law schools.

Shelby Steele

This fascinating and powerful collection of thoughtful young voices is eye-opening even to those versed in the machinations of diversity in higher education. It is a book of experiences more than abstractions, and it opens us to the inner lives of those usually too young and too busy to speak for themselves. I was disturbed and yet also moved as I read the stories of people so young already fighting so hard for their integrity. No one can read this book without admiration for its writers and horror at the situation they find themselves in. There is no other book like it.

Dennis Prager

David Wienir, Marc Berley, and the contributors to The Diversity Hoax are profiles in courage.

Harvey A. Silverglate

David Wienir and Marc Berley are to be congratulated both for their principles and this illuminating book. They believe in true diversity of ideas, including those that disagree with the main premise of this extraordinary collection. An indispensable follow-up to The Shadow University, The Diversity Hoax bears moral witness to a scandal of immense proportions: freedom of speech and conscience are being trampled at American college and university campuses. Bravo for an essential job well done! --Co-author (with Alan Charles Kors) of The Shadow University: The Betrayal of Liberty on America's Campuses.

Edwin Meese

The Diversity Hoax is required reading for anyone concerned about legal education in America. These intriguing essays show how the illiberal orthodoxy of "political correctness" is stifling debate at an institution that should be an open marketplace of ideas. By describing the problem so clearly and candidly, this excellent book may be the beginning of its resolution.
