Former San Francisco State University president and U.S. Senator S.I. Hayakawa was a complex figure, according to biographer Gerald Haslam. An influential academic, Hayakawa supported ethnic studies programs -- but not the student tactics employed to win them. He also ruffled feathers by calling the Japanese internment "an adventure." Haslam joins us to discuss Hayakawa's legacy.

Guests:

Gerald Haslam, professor emeritus at Sonoma State University, adjunct professor at the Fromm Institute at the University of San Francisco and author of "In Thought and Action: The Enigmatic Life of S.I. Hayakawa"
