Product description

College curriculums once centered on instruction in the classics of Western civilization have become smorgasbords where almost anything qualifies as a course in the liberal arts. Stanford University, caving in to the Black Student Union, removed Homer, Dante, Luther, Darwin, and Freud from its course on Western civilization. At Dartmouth, a professor of women's studies describes the goal of her program as "the reconstruction of reality." Sykes calls the abandonment of the great books a "startling triumph for unreason" and shows how American higher education is turning out hollow men and women.
