Presenting a thoughtful justification for the left in American education, Donald Lazere argues that 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.

MEDIA REVIEWS

"One of the highest compliments we pay fellow teachers is, 'I wish I could have taken one of their classes.' I thought that often as I read Why Higher Education Should Have a Leftist Bias. Donald Lazere's careful framing of questions, coherent arguments, and concise writing are refreshing. He is open and honest about his moral and political commitments, as well as open and honest about the need for all of us to challenge each other. For decades, Lazere has attempted to engage right-wing critics of the academy while also honestly accounting for the postmodern excesses of some left scholars, and this book is a delightful account of that struggle." - Robert Jensen, Professor, School of Journalism, University of Texas at Austin, USA

"Donald Lazere's Why Higher Education Should Have a Leftist Bias is no polemic; it is a thoughtful and provocative argument for a much broader and engaging intellectual and political culture. It is a vital contribution to a debate all students and teachers, and many other Americans, should be having." - Robert W. McChesney, Gutgsell Endowed Professor, University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, USA
