Review Of Tenured Radicals
by Roger Kimball Published by Harper & Row, 1990

Kimball discusses the radical politics of many in academia, but he puts his main focus on the absurdity of what passes for scholarship on the campuses. He writes about the unintelligible jargon, or "ProfSpeak," which passes for erudition in the academic world. He describes the "deconstructionist" movement, which he calls a scam perpetrated by academics in order to create more possibilities for papers, symposiums, specialized classes, and university teaching positions. — Phyllis Schlafly
