In his sequel to ProfScam, Sykes traces the decline of college curricula and shows how students and their parents are paying more money for less education. Sykes also examines the extreme politicization of the American campus and argues that this environment is producing hollow men and women with no more than a brief expose to the great books and ideas of Western civilization.
