The current issue of the Review features a hard-hitting review of David Horowitz’s new book, The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. Although I admire Horowitz, I suspect (based on having read portions of the book) that the reviewer has a point when he states:
The problem in academia. . .is not the few fringe terrorist turned professors, but rather the widespread homogeneity of opinion that is decidedly left-leaning. . . .[Horowitz] never stops to think that 36 moderately liberal professors could push opinion better than one bombastic professor who radicalizes opinion. Constant exposure to these well-meaning liberals is the basis of the “indoctrination” debate. . . .
