Summary
Calls attention to the dangers of the politically correct movement. Annotation. The "politically correct" have managed to completely alter the nature of college education in the United States and elsewhere and seek to "destroy Western civilization in order to build a more perfect world" through the demonization of white male heterosexuals, argues Zilbergeld (political science, Montclair State U.). Along with his own views in such areas as sex relations, affirmative action, environmentalism, and war, he presents readings from academia and the popular press
