The U.S. military has an exemplary set of rules governing both race relations and gender discrimination, and yet it has experienced repeated sex scandals and long-lingering racial tensions. This edited volume takes on that paradox and critically examines the reasons underlying it. Looking at the institutional culture of the military, shows us how the norms and daily practices of military life may condone and even encourage continued harassment and discrimination. Original essays from a variety of perspectives compare efforts to confront issues of diversity based on gender, race, and sexual orientation. The similarities among disparate cases are striking, and each chapter sheds new light on how discrimination may multiply its effects.
