This is a review of Kenneth L. Marcus's award winning book,'Jewish Identity and Civil Rights in America' (Cambridge University Press 2010). It evaluates the book's coverage of campus anti-Semitism in America and the author's legal and policy arguments in favour of using Title VI Civil Rights Act 1964 to protect Jewish students (and other ethno-religious groups) from discrimination. It also discusses Marcus's unique explanation of "the dilemma of Jewish difference" in which he considers whether Jews are a race, or a religion, or a nation, or a people, or any combination.
