Interview with Nathan Glazer

Nathan Glazer interviewed by John Kaag in the Chronicle of Higher Education.

Student protests, free-speech controversies, and debates over diversity in academe are nothing new to Nathan Glazer. A professor at the University of California at Berkeley and then at Harvard, he co-authored the sociology classics The Lonely Crowd (1950)and Beyond the Melting Pot (1963). He was in the vanguard of what became known as neoconservatism, although he’s wary of political labels, and in the 1960s and ’70s he criticized affirmative action and the increasingly violent lurch of student demonstrations. Decades later, he came to reconsider his views on affirmative action.
