520    "What does it mean to be Jewish? This ancient question has
       become a pressing civil rights controversy. Despite a 
       recent resurgence of anti-Semitic incidents on American 
       college campuses, the U.S. Department of Education's 
       powerful Office for Civil Rights (OCR) has been unable to 
       protect Jewish students. This failure has been a problem 
       not of execution but of conceptualization. The OCR has 
       been unable to address anti-Jewish harassment because it 
       lacks a coherent conception of either Jewish identity or 
       anti-Jewish hatred. 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."--|cProvided by publisher.
