Good book. Kind of anecdotal.

Horowitz writes about the aftermath of his Academic Freedom campaign and its effects. He explains why courses must be taught in a non-partisan and non-sectarian to seed the minds of new students into critical thought and the pursuit of knowledge in an independent fashion.

One of the more interesting facts, I got from this book is that there are many academics teaching in courses they are not qualified to teach. How these teachers found themselves teaching and writing

I wanted to like this book because I agree the university is a place where students should be free to learn the facts and hear all points of view. However, after putting down the left for attacking him instead of the cause, Horowitz proceeds to do the same to his attackers. I was hoping to read about how we can have free discourse in the classroom. Instead I got a list of people who don't like him and why they are bad.

This book fails to address one major component of academic freedom. The Indigenous perspective is widely undermined in the world of academnics and this book fails to incorporate the collective wisdom Indigenous peoples possess and its important place in academia. The backbone of this book has a political foundation, and offers little to the argument of educational freedom, especially for Indigenous peoples.

I'm familiar with his work - universities bad, here's why, leftists taking over the classroom. I am sure this is full of egregious examples of left-wing bias and censorship, but I couldn't find time to finish it.

My sister sent me this book for my birthday. I just started it. It is good so far......I have finished this now. I liked it. There are other books I liked better on this subject but still good.

This was excellent and entirely true. I almost wish Horowitz was a Democrat, because being a Conservative apparently disqualifies you from credibility in today's Academia.
