In this collection, nine essays assess the current state of American universities and their prospects for the future. The contributors analyze the cultural and intellectual disputes concerning relativism, multiculturalism, and radical feminism, all of which affect higher education today. In general, the authors consider affirmative action programs as the primary reason for increased racial tensions on campus. Although multiculturalists strive for the elimination of inequalities based on race, class, and sex, they succeed in fueling conflict within universities. The proper role of the university and the mission of higher education in the context of these consequential political and social movements are examined. This timely and significant book will appeal to academic collections serving university administrators and educators.
