This book not only gives the factual background on the events leading to his termination from Western Illinois University but also examines other issues facing today's university. It is apparent that studying nude beaches and the teaching of Socrates and Aristotle were not politically correct at Western Illinois University. While not formally charged, Harker was found guilty of the same crimes as Socrates: impiety and corrupting youth. Unlike Socrates or Aristotle, Dr Leisure declined to drink the hemlock or to leave town. Harker is working to restore the concept of tenure and economic freedom at WIU. Without it the university is doomed to decline. Harker believes, "If the university is to be a place that fosters new ideas and creative thinking, then academic freedom and tenure must be held sacred and nurtured."
