Customer Review

on November 15, 2008
This is such a strange case! A team of ultra-Left sociologists and cultural anthropologists managed to get a hold of an encyclopedia editorship and, bizarrely, Gale publishing didn't see fit to appoint a single historian! As a result the inclusion of Jewish national identity as "racist" in an article written by someone who has no academic credentials in the subject and is "lifelong" activist against Jewish causes.
Uh oh! You'd think once caught, Gale would apologize and cut the article. But, instead, they have created an editorial nightmare--insisting that the new versions of the encyclopedia turn into a debate over this issue.
What's left is a massive mess with no scholarly credibility. That's a shame because many (if not most) of the contributions are of some interest and utility.
The proper response to this is to refuse to purchase books by Gale and its parent company Cengage for refusing to make the responsible decision.
