Editorial Reviews

Review

"By detailing the corruption of our academic ideals, [the authors] have hastened the much-needed and long-awaited restoration of higher education."  —Christopher Cox, United States Congressman


"A devastating indictment of how a great university came close to being destroyed."  —Philip Merrill, president and publisher, Washingtonian


"Two recent Stanford graduates document the situation there with a thoroughness that should help stiffen the spine of university administrators."  —René Girard, professor of comparative literature, Stanford University


"There’s hardly a better source than this book for learning why multiculturalism on campus cannot work."  —Linda Chavez, former director, US Commission on Civil Rights


"A great read, and an important and instructive story... will not just cause alarm about our educational institutions, it will inspire renewal."  —William Kristol, editor and publisher, The Weekly Standard


"The Diversity Myth shows how McCarthyism on the left is as dangerous as it is on the right. Read and weep for what is happening at our colleges."  —Richard D. Lamm, former governor of Colorado


"With fascinating and often disheartening detail, The Diversity Myth is the most thorough and detailed account yet available of what "multiculturalism" has meant at a major American university."  —Nathan Glazer, professor of education and sociology, Harvard University
