American universities are once again the scene of angry controversy. This time it is the politics of race and sex that has sparked a wave of bitter confrontations. Some of these disputes have made national headlines; many more go unreported. They may appear to be unrelated cases of excessive zeal. But as the author argues in this firsthand report from today's deeply troubled American campus, the conflicts are the fruit of a coherent ideology that seeks to thrust the university into the vanguard of social reform and to establish a model "multicultural community".
