In his latest book, politics professor Keith Whittington sets out to answer the question: Who controls what is taught in American universities — professors or politicians? He argues that this is an urgent question that must be addressed sooner rather than later, as political forces are trying to influence the classroom. In You Can’t Teach That (Polity) Whittington unpacks the meaningful limits the First Amendment imposes on how much say government officials can have in restricting ideas discussed on university campuses. This book clearly outlines the current legal status of academic freedom in the U.S. and what can be done to protect it in the courts.
