A plea for the value of liberal arts education (yay!) that reads like an infomercial for conservative homeschoolers wondering if George Wythe University is right for their children (boo!). The historical arguments are shaky and the recommended canon of literature too narrow. One of its few attempts at embracing a global perspective is marred by the misspelling of Gandhi's name.
