Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

“David Horowitz has single-handedly exposed the intellectual corruption that exists within the classrooms of American colleges. Like all forms of corruption, indoctrination flourishes when kept in the dark. Here, Horowitz turns on the bright lights to expose what has become profoundly wrong with our colleges and universities. We are all in his debt.”

-Ward Connerly, former regent, University of California

David Horowitz and coauthor Jacob Laksin take us inside twelve major universities where radical agendas have been institutionalized and scholarly standards abandoned. The schools they examine are not the easily avoided bottom of the barrel. Rather, they are an all-too-representative sampling of American higher education today.

Horowitz and Laksin have conducted the first comprehensive, in-depth, multiyear investigation of what is being taught in colleges and universities across the country-public to private, from large state schools to elite Ivy League institutions. They have systematically scrutinized course catalogs, reading lists, professors biographies, scholarly records, and the first-person testimonies of students, administrators, and faculty. Citing more than 150 specific courses, they reveal how academic standards have been violated and demonstrate beyond dispute that systematic indoctrination in radical politics is now an integral part of the liberal arts curriculum of Americas colleges. The extreme ideological cant that todays students are being fed includes:

• Promoting Marxist approaches as keys to understanding human societies-with no mention of the bloody legacy of these doctrines and total collapse in the real world of the societies they created

• Instilling the idea that racism, brutally enforced by a “white male patriarchy” to oppress people of color and other marginalized groups, has been the organizing principle of American society throughout its history and into the present

• Requiring students to believe that gender is not a biological characteristic but a socially created aspect of human behavior designed by men to oppress women

• Persuading students that America and Israel are “imperialistic” and “racist” states and that the latter has no more right to exist than the South African regime in the days of apartheid

In page after shocking page, Horowitz and Laksin demonstrate that Americas colleges and universities are platforms for a virulent orthodoxy that threatens academic ideals and academic freedom. In place of scholarship and the dispassionate pursuit of truth that have long been the hallmarks of higher learning, the new militancy embraces activist zealotry and ideological fervor. In disturbingly large segments of todays universities, students are no longer taught how to think but are told what to think.

Synopsis:

In this follow-up to his "New York Times" bestseller "The Professors," Horowitz offers a stunning expos of what's really being taught in America's college classrooms--namely, left-wing political indoctrination.

"one party classroom" is very hard to put down the arthur david horowitz has done an exellent job researching the differentunifersitys and colleges and showing which professors and teachers are there for the learning and which ones are there to indoctrinate the students which is intresting because it is showing that they are there to use the states money for political aims and issues instead of teaching the students what they are suppose to be learning. this is a intresting book because it documents how some professors are using their own political views to indoctrinate classrooms some have even been fired such as ward churchille. this best seller would make a fine gift for a friend or family member.

"one party classroom" is a very hard to put down bestseller. the arthur david horowitz has done alot of very indepth research showing that certain teachers and professors in certain universitiys are using state funds to teach partisons points of view and anti american thought instead of regular class learning as they are suppose to do. this is a very fasinating book and it really opened my eyes to supposed wasteful spending such as professor ward churchhill and his radical teachings that got him fired. Iam going to read more of mr horowitzs books his documentation is very indepth. students need to hear nonpartison learning. this book would make a great gift for someone special.
