Indoctrination U.: The Left's War Against Academic Freedom

Front Cover

1 Review
In 2003, David Horowitz began a campaign to promote intellectual diversity and a return to academic standards in American universities. To achieve these goals he devised an Academic Bill of Rights and created a national student movement with chapters on 160 college campuses. Take No Prisoners is a riveting account of the reaction to Horowitz's campaign by professor unions and academic associations, whose leaderships have been taken over by the political left.

An incredibly interesting book. I came across professors like this as an undergraduate at Michigan State University; fortunately for me, I knew how to handle them and they were few and far between. David Horowitz is extremely readable. I really enjoy reading his work online too. Read full review
