Why did Yale University Press remove the Muhammad cartoons from Brandeis University Professor Jytte Klausen'sforthcoming book on the cartoon controversy? It turns out, Roger Kimball reports, the question is not susceptible to an easy answer. Kimball explores the question in "Villain or fall guy: Yale and the case of the missing cartoons."
I don't want to spoil the suspense of Kimball's story, but will say that Roger has followed the evidence from Yale University Press to the Yale University administration itself. Highly recommended.
UPDATE: Roger is still on the case in "Yale and the Danish cartoons: The plot thickens."
