In the early 1950s, a young Harvard professor named Henry Kissinger approached the FBI with alleged evidence of communist subversion among the foreign students of his summer seminar. His evidence was a flyer criticizing the nuclear arms build-up and promoting world peace. At the same time at Yale, young William F. Buckley, Jr., was discovering more than God while writing God and Man at Yale as an undergraduate. He was discovering J. Edgar Hoover. These are just two examples of how ambitious young men used the "special relationship" developing between the FBI and the universities to advance their fledgling careers. Revelations such as these abound in Sigmund Diamond's Compromised Campus, an eye-opening look at the role American intelligence agencies played at some of America's most prestigious universities. It is often said that in the 1950s, American universities were free of the McCarthyism that pervaded the rest of the nation. Not so, says Diamond. Using previously secret materials newly made available under the Freedom of Information Act, and an impressive amount of information gained from years of research in university and foundation archives, he reveals that despite academia's official story of autonomy from the federal government, in fact university administrators, faculty, and students secretly and actively sought close ties with intelligence agencies. Diamond describes the cooperation of Harvard President James B. Conant with intelligence agencies, the institution and operation of Harvard's Russian Research Center, Yale's shadowy "liaison agent" H.B. Fisher, who moved from problems of student drinking to cooperation with the FBI in loyalty-security matters, and the existence of formal and informal relations with the FBI and other intelligence agencies at major universities throughout the country. He calls attention to the cooperation of university presidents--Griswold of Yale, Dodds of Princeton, Wriston of Brown, Sproul of California, among others--with the FBI and state governors on the techniques of blacklisting. Diamond shows how this interaction between intelligence agencies and American universities has had serious consequences for America ever since--on foreign policy, questions of law and constitutional government, the role of secrecy, separation of public and private activities, and the existence and control of government deceit and lawlessness. Dismissed himself from Harvard in the 1950s by McGeorge Bundy (for refusing to talk to the FBI about former associates), Diamond brings a special immediacy to this revealing study

Historical aspects of bilingualism in the United States by Sigmund Diamond( Book )

3 editions published between 1980 and 1983 in English and held by 14 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Attitudes and policies toward bilingualism in the United States have always been affected by political considerations. Although controversy over bilingualism is political in principle, it is a particular kind of political controversy, that is, a manifestation of a new stage in the history of an even larger controversy over the meaning of citizenship. The history of doctrines of citizenship in the United States documents the conflict between citizenship--a status indicating equal and full membership in the body politic--and stratification--indicating the existence of something less than equality outside the realm of the polity. To the extent that language formally affects the process by which one may legally acquire citizenship or to the extent that an attitude toward language expresses prejudice toward the group using that language, members of the group may feel aggrieved that the equality implicit in their status as citizens is belied by the inequality of their lives. In the United States, the closeness of the relation between language and citizenship was intensified by two factors of history (1) the importance of immigration; and (2) the use of English as a major test for determining loyalty to what was seen at the particular time as American beliefs. The debate over bilingualism is, therefore, a manifestation of two larger controversies: the conflict between the equality of citizenship and the inequality of stratification, and the conflict between citizenship as full membership in the body politic and alienship as the status of those who are not or may not be admitted.
