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 exposé, 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.
Said it all
Mr. Buckley, in this brief but consequential book, says about everything that needs to be said about the way the not so modern liberalism uses the academic setting to indoctrinate the brightest minds into the world of secular and socialist thought. This sets them down a path from which they rarely emerge.
Obviously read by a computer
This book is obviously written by a computer. For me listening to a robot read a book is highly unpleasant.
