Giroux SS. Between race and reason: Violence, intellectual responsibility, and the university to come. Stanford, Calif.: Stanford University Press; 2010. Abstract

"Inquiring into the future of the university, Susan Giroux finds a paradox at the heart of higher education in the post-civil rights era. Although we think of "post-civil rights" as representing a colorblind or race transcendent triumphalism in national political discourse, Giroux argues that our present is shaped by persistent "raceless" racism at home and permanent civilizational war abroad. She sees the university as a primary battleground in this ongoing struggle."
