In this electrifying new book, Roger Kimball argues that Ward Churchill, far from being an isolated case, is typical of the radical mindset that characterizes the contemporary university. Kimball's passionately argued investigation brings new light to such controverted issues as tenure, the relationship between academic freedom and free speech, and the moral obligations teachers owe to students and to society at large. Retaking the University shows how parents, alumni, and college trustees, together with other concerned critics, hold the key to rescuing the university from the institutionalized radicalism that has made American higher education synonymous with political activism and intellectual betrayal.
