The Higher Superstition: The Academic Left and Its Quarrels with Science by Paul R. Gross and Norman Levitt reveals the terrifying irrationality of the left-wing elites that control the universities and the bullying tactics they use to enforce political correctness.

Silly French intellectual fads such as postmodernism have of course done much of the damage and Gross and Levitt have a good deal of fun demolishing thier follies. They were also among the first to draw attention to the lies being told on the subject of global warming.
