"For God, for country, and for Yale... in that order," William F. Buckley Jr. wrote as the dedication of his monumental work—a compendium of knowledge that still resonates within the halls of the Ivy League university that tried to cover up its political and religious bias.

In 1951, a twenty-five-year-old Yale graduate published his first book, which exposed the "extraordinarily irresponsible educational attitude" that prevailed at his alma mater. The book, God and Man at Yale, rocked the academic world and catapulted its young author, William F. Buckley Jr. into the public spotlight. Now, half a century later, read the extraordinary work that began the modern conservative movement.

Buckley's harsh assessment of his alma mater divulged the reality behind the institution's wholly secular education, even within the religion department and divinity school. Unabashed, one former Yale student details the importance of Christianity and heralds the modern conservative movement in his preeminent tell-all, God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of "Academic Freedom."

"... to my mind, though I am native here, And to the manner born, it is a customMore honor'd in the breach than the observance," so says William Buckley of Yale's and, indeed, higher education's adherence to it's own, self-serving doctrine of "academic freedom." A surprisingly good read - dictionary in hand, of course - especially given that it was written more than sixty years ago. Both prescient and discouraging for those preferring individualism over collectivism. A new dark age awaits if we accept the fools gold of "Hope and Change" as intellectual currency.

Well reasoned critique of University teachings falling far short of its original charter and mission. An insightful and comprehensive argument against the unrestrained teachings of collectivism by a faculty run amuck. Though written in 1952, it reads as if could have been written today.

Truly a classic and a must read for anyone concerned with the state of education in America today, and how it got this way.
