Bernstein offers an examination of multiculturalism--from its noble roots to the abuses and excesses that he sees being perpetrated in its name. Dictatorship of Virtue takes us to the front lines of this war for America's intellectual future: battles of school curricula, local legislation, college reading lists, censorship and freedom of expression, diversity workshops, and the inroads of what Bernstein calls questionable scholarship.
