Larry Arnn does an excellent job giving the history of education in the US, including the unwelcome intrusion of federal government and how that intrusion limits the freedom of speech in this country. A good read.

Anyone interested in one of the best liberal arts colleges in the country will enjoy this book. Dr Arnn's takes you though
the history of this little college in Michican from conception in 1844 to present day. Talking about some of the past students
who went on to do great things, the struggles with the government, and reknown speakers who can to the college. I will read
anything Dr. Larry Arnn's will write.
