How Activist Scholarship Made Everything about Race, Gender, and Identity―and Why This Harms Everybody

While acknowledging the need to challenge complacency, the authors argue that this often-radical scholarship does far more harm than good, noting its alarmingly inconsistent and illiberal ethics.
