Overview


It’s no secret that our universities have become hotbeds of radical leftist thought. While professors and administrators pay lip-service to concepts like open-mindedness and robust debate, they try to squash any opinion that doesn’t match their radical left world view. Well, world-renowned campus activist David Horowitz wants to bring diversity back to the college campus! This Fall, he will launch a new book—and a new campaign—to shine the light on the college thought police. In his new book,Reforming Our Universities, Horowitz will describe his decades-long campaign against intellectual bigotry, grade discrimination, and the denial of basic rights to any and all whose opinions diverge from the extreme liberal orthodoxy. And on college campuses across the country, Horowitz will launch an “Adopt a Dissenting Book” campaign, which urges professors to include conservative and pro-American books and resources as part of their overall curriculum. Reforming Our Universities will lay out his blueprint for reversing leftist indoctrination on campus though an Academic Bill of Rights. Horowitz’s reform is not a partisan call for universities to hire more conservatives, but rather a call for true academic freedom, where students as well as teachers are free to say what they think.

What People Are Saying

Newt Gingrich
"No one has been more important to the cause of academic freedom in America than David Horowitz. Reforming Our Universities is not only a must read for those concerned about left–wing bias on campus; it is the story of how a small group of determined people, armed with the truth, can stand up to powerful, entrenched interests and make a difference."--(Newt Gingrich, New York Times bestselling author of To Save America)
Stanley Fish
"This impassioned rehearsal of David Horowitz's efforts to have the Academic Bill of Rights adopted by states and universities will provoke counter–narratives by those who are on the other side (as I sometimes am) of the issues he raises. If so, all to the good; it is exactly what Horowitz wants, a dialogue on these questions, and it is a dialogue we should have."--(Stanley Fish, Davidson-Kahn Distinguished University Professor and professor of law at Florida International University )
Candace de Russy
Reforming Our Universities is the story of one man's efforts to restore educational principles to academic classrooms, and why he failed. It exposes the voices inside the educational establishment who are opposed to change and indifferent to principle, and explains why liberal arts colleges are becoming indoctrination centers for partisan interests and political sects. An indispensible book."--(Candace de Russy, former trustee, State University of New York )
Roger Kimball
"David Horowitz is a national treasure. In his courage, passion, and perseverance he has done more than anyone to expose the rottenness—moral and political as well as intellectual—that has infected the heart of American higher education. In this explosive new book, he adds treatment to diagnosis, providing concrete, workable strategies to achieve what many of us had given up as hopeless: reclaiming the university. This book is essential reading for anyone concerned about the future of American culture." --(Roger Kimball, author of Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education)
