Synopses & Reviews
At the University of Pennsylvania, separate dorms have been set up for minorities in the name of racial harmony. In New Jersey, dentists who are HIV positive do not have to tell their patients despite the proven risk of infection. Grades are so inflated at Harvard that 84% of the students recently graduated with honors. Among women soldiers returning on a troop ship from Desert Storm, one in ten was pregnant. And these absurdities are but a few of the end products of a rampant social madness that threatens our nation--thanks, according to author Martin L. Gross, to a dangerous "New Establishment" of educators, judges, bureaucrats and military leaders who have consigned the concepts that have made America great to the cultural scrap heap. In his most explosive and powerfully reasoned work to date, Gross exposes the roots of a crisis that heralds the end of sanity in American life, and offers cogent remedies that can reverse the damage already done, and lead our society toward a greater, saner tomorrow.
Includes bibliographical references (p. 315-327) and index.
