Overview

From college presidents to governors, to TV reporters, to faculty, to government agents, to drug dealers, to students of every political stripe, this novel follows a trail of circumstances, opportunities seized, weaknesses exploited, advantages enlarged, groups co-opted, expediencies implemented, to the ultimate unforeseen result where facts, rationality and evidence are sacrificed for a "greater good," where questioning is insensitive and disagreement is backlash, in a takeover that both liberals and conservatives see as ominous, a takeover that is reaching beyond the ivy walls into radio, TV, motion pictures and newspapers.

If you think college is still the way it always was, has this book got news for you! This book makes the case for the urgency of reclaiming the colleges and schools better than any book I know and I've read most of them. It shows what is going on, why it is going on, and how it came about. If anything, it bends over backward too much to be fair to the people who have revolutionized--or to use their word 'transformed'--the colleges into what they are now.
