Book Overview

This Description may be from another edition of this product.

This is the book that launched Buckley's career--and a movement. As a young recent graduate, Buckley took on Yale's professional and administrative staffs, citing their hypocritical withdrawal from the tenets upon which the institution was built. Yale was founded on the belief that God exists, and thus virtue and individualism represent immutable cornerstones of education. But when Buckley wrote this scathing expose, the institution had made an about-face: Yale was expounding collectivism and agnosticism. This classic work shows Buckley as he ever was: dauntless, venturesome, bold, and valiant. More than half a century later, experience the extraordinary work that began the modern conservative movement.

   God and Academic Freedom. We have the duty to control the education of our children.
Academic freedom is important. When you challenge what they are teaching, they use two words. This book will explain why they shouldn't be allowed to do this. Although it is written through an alumni's eyes, there is still no excuse for what Yale has been teaching. They don't want input from parents or alumni, just their money. In public schools where taxpayers and parents have a right to be heard, the failure is not only with the school, but with those who do not get involved. There are many ways in which the influence of Yale can be seen across the nation. I would like to see someone write a book about Columbia Teachers College. Many teachers are hostile to God, but others ignore it. They send signals to the students.
   I'm the same age as the book
Sociology anthropology and economics have the same trend to make a thesis. They gravitate towards academics in one direction.
The book was very hard to find, but it was everything I hoped it would be. Buckley's argument that Yale treated religion, individualism, and academic freedom in 1951 goes a long way to explain how nothing has changed in the academy today. The race and gender nonsense has added to the badness. The copy I bought was badly damaged and the spine was ruined, which caused chunks of pages to fall out.
   Bill Buckley at this best
I should have read this book many years ago. One of the best conservatives who ever lived wrote a critique of Yale University.
   Surprisingly still relevant
William F Buckley would go on to be one of the greatest, if not the greatest, American conservative thinker of the 20 th century. A lot has changed since he wrote the book, but a few of his observations are still relevant. It's an impressive work for a recent college graduate, despite some rough parts and some bad arguments.
   Thought provoking reading
The book improves the quality of your language. Even after 50 years, it is still relevant as it was at the time and is still relevant today.
   Good detailed history of Yale controversies; but not easy reading.
A bit dull reading for me. I was disappointed in the lack of good principles found in Scripture. Not a practical reading. I had to finish it myself. It's great for a review of biased learning principles.
