What’s Liberal about the Liberal Arts?: Classroom Politics and “Bias” in Higher Education by Michael Bérubé [W.W. Norton - $26.95]


In Michael Bérubé, liberal academics—and everyone else appalled by David Horowitz’s bizarre attack on university culture—finally have someone willing to mix it up in the blogs and in the press, with humor and good sense. What separates Bérubé from the usual defenders of the academy is his sheer quotability, in addition to his apparently indefatigable energy. And what separates him from Horowitz and others is his attempt to reconstruct what actually happens in the classroom, as opposed to in the echo chamber of the press. [Amazon]
