NOTE: This chronologically ordered bibliography is not intended to be exhaustive, but suggestions of excellent additional items for inclusion are welcome. A major criterion for including items is that they are supportive of the letter and spirit of the 1964 Civil Rights Act and the California Constitution, that they support teaching in public schools on any relevant topic, but that they oppose ideological indoctrination and compelled speech or opinion in any public school, government agency or other public institution. The list will be periodically updated but does not attempt to keep up with the newest writings. To stay up-to-date on these issues you can get on the mailing list of a few organizations that regularly publish newsletters, news items, opinion pieces, videos and scholarly articles on the issues. These include, in addition to CFER, Alliance for Constructive Ethnic Studies, Minding the Campus, Campus Reform, Foundation Against Intolerance & Racism, National Association of Scholars, Real Clear Politics, Law & Liberty, The Federalist, The College Fix, Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, City Journal, Epoch Times, Legal Insurrection, The Spectator, Commentary, American Greatness and National Review. Suggestions of new items for the bibliography can be sent to hurlbert@sdsu.edu . Inclusion of an item does not imply our endorsement of every statement or idea in it or of the philosophy and principles of the source organization.
