Summary
"Presenting a thoughtful justification for the academic left in American higher education, Donald Lazere argues that in order to teach students rhetoric and critical thinking, key components of a humanist education, educators must discuss and teach students to grapple with the conservative bias in academia, the media, and politics that is considered to be the status quo"--
