An indispensible historical source.,
By A Customer
This review is from: Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education (Paperback)
When some future historian sits down to research his multivolume work on the history of human imbecility, he will discover the most interesting, exotic, and vivid forms of this vast enterprise in academia. And he will find Roger Kimball's turn-of-the-century researches on this subject to be an indispensible source. He will also find it a pleasure to read, which is unusual for a book which serves as a kind of catalogue of the the nasty, silly, and futile projects of the PostMod Academic. Mind you, Tenured Radicals is not for all contemporary readers. Many will experience its lucidity as a highly personal insult. Others will react to its wit with peevish resentment. Never mind. As the ancient Persian proverb tells us, "The dogs will bark but the caravan moves on."
