"We all know that left-wing radicals from the 1960s have hung around academia and hired people like themselves. But if you thought they were all harmless, antiquated hippies, you'd be wrong." "Horowitz exposes 101 academics - representative of thousands of radicals who teach our young people - who also happen to be alleged ex-terrorists, racists, murderers, sexual deviants, anti-Semites, and al-Qaeda supporters." "David Horowitz's riveting expose is essential reading for parents, students, college alums, taxpayers, and patriotic Americans who don't think college students should be indoctrinated by sympathizers of Joseph Stalin and Osama bin Laden. The Professors is truly frightening - and an intellectual call to arms from a courageous author who knows the radicals all too well."--BOOK JACKET.Title Summary field provided by Blackwell North America, Inc.

Page xli - The function of the university is to seek and to transmit knowledge and to train students in the processes whereby truth is to be made known.
