"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 leftwing 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
"This impassioned rehearsal of David Horowitz's efforts to have the Academic Bill of Rights adopted by states and universities will provoke counternarratives 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
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
"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
