Enyclopedia on Race and Racism: The Next Chapter

This is a cross post by Ben Cohen of Z Word

Over a year ago, I wrote about an entry on Zionism for an encyclopedia published under a well-known, trusted imprint: the “Encyclopedia of Race and Racism,” which carries the names of both Macmillan Reference USA (now owned by the Michigan-based Gale, Cengage Learning company) and the Macmillan Social Science Library. At the time, there was quite a storm and the publishers resolved to do something about it.

Sadly, their compromise formula makes a bad situation worse, as I explain in this op-ed for the Jerusalem Post.
