From the Publisher"In 2003, right wing activist David Horowitz introduced his Academic Bill of Rights (ABOR), a treatise on higher education that seeks to correct what Horowitz perceives as a Leftist domination of and favoritism within academy. Aby (education, U. of Akron, Ohio) compiles 17 critiques of the doctrine, at their center seven installments of the debate between Horowitz and outspoken opponent Graham Larkin of Stanford U. Other essays describe the background to the conservative fight against higher education practices, argue that the ABOR's realization would threaten academic principles such as reasoned inquiry, and takes issue with the notion that party affiliation is either a determining factor in faculty hiring or that it influences great distinctions in curriculum."

"[T]hese essays tell both sides of the story . . . As conservatives attempt to curb liberal radicals in academia, the ABOR is an ongoing debate seemingly between the right and left. However, this collection manages to remain reasonably neutral and is able to point out the similar stances between those for and against ABOR."
