Comments Tenured Radicals, Revised: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education

  1. Okay, up front, Some of you will hate this book, you ll disagree and without even reading it Others like myself will look at it and say, Yeah, I ve seen this going on Like media bias some of us see it, find it obvious and wonder that anyone refuses to believe it This book deals with the current condition of unbiased scholarship in our institutions of higher learning In short, it s pretty much nonexistent.The ideal of University was always supposed to uninfluenced education Beginning in the 60s a [...]


  2. From the acknowledgements page where Kimball credits both the arriere garde New Criterion and the fetid Olin Foundation to the concluding quotation of fascist sympathizer Evelyn Waugh, this text manages to get just about everything wrong Some of the salient problems, culled simply for brevity s sake from the preface and first chapter Intellectual Dishonesty Kimball claims that the self righteous emphasis on diversity, relevance, and sensitivity provides a graphic example of the way in which the [...]

  5. The primary question I have for this book is, Is what Kimball is describing the exception or the norm It is critical as his entire text rests upon this simple matter of fact read


  6. An absolute must who anyone who teaches in higher education It is great book about the politics of the Ivory Tower.
