Governments across the globe are struggling to deal with the socially deplorable issues of racism and ethnic hatred. No more apparent is this struggle in the US where educational institutions find themselves at the forefront of legal and social practices to combat racism. This book studies the race-based legal cases and literature surrounding three seemingly different practices in US academic institutions: affirmative action in college administrations, hate speech codes (developed to prevent racist insitement in colleges), and tenure of faculty of colour.
