Review Of The Book Wars by James Atlas
Published by Whittle Books, 1990

If you missed the longer tomes, this book of only 90 pages provides a good overview of academia in non-academic language. Atlas describes his shock in seeing the current curriculum at Harvard, his alma mater. He says it's no wonder that today's students haven't mastered a core of classics because their professors have a positive hatred for the Great Books and view America's entire past as an era of unmitigated oppression.— Phyllis Schlafly
