Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America, Hardback Book

Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America Hardback


Given jurisdiction over race and national origin but not religion, federal agents have had to determine whether Jewish Americans constitute a race or national origin group.

They have been unable to do so. This has led to enforcement paralysis, as well as explosive internal confrontations and recriminations within the federal government.

This book examines the legal and policy issues behind the ambiguity involved with civil rights protections for Jewish students.

Written by a former senior government official, this book reveals the extent of this problem and presents a workable legal solution.
