Editorial Reviews

From Publishers Weekly

Horowitz, author of Unholy Alliance and founder of FrontPageMag.com, profiles 101 professors whose politics run left of center (in many cases, very, very left of center), and though his list is impressive in size and the amount of research that went into it, the most egregious crimes perpetrated by the majority of these academics is that their politics don't mesh with Horowitz's. Which isn't to say Horowitz hasn't turned up a few surprises: a Northwestern University law professor has a sordid history involving the Weather Underground, and a Rutgers University professor's early poems included lines like, "Rape the white girls" and "I got the extermination blues, jewboys." However, his intention to expose the majority of these professors as "dangerous" and undeserving of their coveted positions seems petty in some cases, as when he smugly mocks the proliferation of departments dedicated to peace studies or considers "anti-war activist" as a character flaw. The only noteworthy point that emerges from Horowitz's melodramatic finger pointing is his questioning of the tenure system, which he believes "serves to protect mediocrity and encourage incompetence." More distressing to Horowitz, it would appear, is that tenure allows professors who disagree with his personal political opinions to continue teaching.

From the Inside Flap

Coming to a Campus Near You: Terrorists, racists, and communists—you know them as The Professors.

We all know that left-wing radicals from the 1960s have hung around academia and hired people like themselves. But if you thought they were all harmless, antiquated hippies, you’d be wrong. Today’s radical academics aren’t the exception—they’re legion. And far from being harmless, they spew violent anti-Americanism, preach anti-Semitism, and cheer on the killing of American soldiers and civilians—all the while collecting tax dollars and tuition fees to indoctrinate our children. Remember Ward Churchill, the University of Colorado professor who compared the victims of the September 11 terrorist attacks to Nazis who deserved what they got? You thought he was bad? In this shocking new book, New York Times bestselling author David Horowitz has news for you: American universities are full of radical academics like Ward Churchill—and worse.

Horowitz exposes 101 academics—representative of thousands of radicals who teach our young people—who also happen to be alleged ex-terrorists, racists, murderers, sexual deviants, anti-Semites, and al-Qaeda supporters. Horowitz blows the cover on academics who:
  • Say they want to kill white people.

  • Promote the views of the Iranian mullahs.
  • Support Osama bin Laden.
  • Lament the demise of the Soviet Union.
  • Defend pedophilia.
  • Advocate the killing of ordinary Americans.

    David Horowitz’s riveting exposé is essential reading for parents, students, college alums, taxpayers, and patriotic Americans who don’t think college students should be indoctrinated by sympathizers of Joseph Stalin and Osama bin Laden.

    The Professors is truly frightening—and an intellectual call to arms from a courageous author who knows the radicals all too well.

Here in Italy, the situation is exactly the same. The leftists Professors - mainly coming from the 1968's Era - use any method to drive the Students (Medium and High Schools, University) towards the well known propaganda of that period: Soviet Union, China, Vietname and similar places and presently many of them are pro-Islam terrorism.

It is obvious that many people do not like to have any challenge to the extremism existing in some colleges. Thats why there so many one star reviews of this book by people who obviously have not read it. While I don't always agree with the author's point of view, this is an intersting book and points out what one may be exposed to at colleges. Many professors seek indoctrination not education and free and open discussions of issues often are not allowed (if you oppose any position of some professors, you are considered a "hate monger"). I had a few crazed professors in the 1970s, but nothing as terrible as Ward Churchill or some of the others exposed in this book. I enjoyed the book and thought it was very readable. I do not think these 101 professors are representative of all college professors, most of whom are very good and seek to provide an education. This book does provide a fair warning for what is out there and takes the lid off of some often closely held secrets.

Horowitz and his staff conducted a somewhat serious study of the academic credentials of some of the most radical college professors in the USA. Most of the writing is objective, but there are some departures into ranting. The state of the academic world is indeed of some concern, and the conclusion of the book is fair, based on the contents of the rest of the book. Of course, they have selected radicals with whom thy disagree, which is a fair game since no one who knows Horowitz's other works or who even reads the cover of this book could be misled. Minus points for including some professors who do not have faulty credentials, just lousy ideas.

I have read this book and many of the reviews that rate it as only one star and I can already start to see the correlations between the illogical nonsense being spewed here in reviews and the indoctrination that goes on in colleges. I graduated from a State University four years ago with a Bachelor's degree and a private universtity two years ago with a Masters so I am pretty familiar with campus life and educational political leanings.

I also consider myself very well rounded and have read many works on both sides of the political spectrum.

The essence of Horowitz's arguments in this book and their translation into the reforms of the Academic freedom campaign are well founded.

Through my own experiences I have seen the left "army" on campuses at work. They seem to disregard and slander any opinions contrarian to their own and have zero tolerance for hearing anything they do not approve of. They will be overzealous in their attempts to quelch any form of communication that spreads ideas that do not follow their idealogies. This can be seen in the restrictive campus speech codes nationwide that are directly in conflict with our constitutional rights.The only purpose of these codes is to squash conservative opinion and not liberal.

I have never seen conservative groups work to ban free speech or conservative professors who turn their classromm into daily diatribes on the inequities of liberals in government. Yet the opposite can not be said for liberals.

While leftist rants should be expected in some Humanities classes as other reviewers have pointed out, leaving out opposite opinions only hurts education.

David Horowitz's newest book, The Professors: The 101 Most Dangerous Academics in America. Horowitz edited and rewrote many of these entries, some of which originally appeared on a website devoted to uncloaking the identities and activities of the political left. The Professors is a compendium rather than a woven narrative, but its pages are always informative and occasionally quite stunning.

In these short, appalling mini-biographies we are made privy to the belief systems of those most responsible for the decline of the American university. Many of these academics were veterans of the counter-cultural experiment that was the 1960s, and they began their long march through the institutions after reaching adulthood. By blocking the hiring of their ideological opposition, they have created an environment wherein long disproven theories like Marxism and post-modernism are able to still flourish and emit their poison into the greater culture.

Their devotion to power and control may be totalitarian but it certainly has been effective. By denying that there is such a thing as "objectivity" they are able to repudiate the need to search for truth and turn their sections into clubs for aspiring radicals. They then excuse their actions by declaring their "engagement" and that teaching of all forms is "a political act." Veritas is replaced with opinion while students receive credit for attending rallies and writing papers about why George W. Bush is a war criminal.

The worst abuses occur in the liberal arts departments which are held prisoner to the race, gender, and class religion. Nowhere is the anti-intellectualism of these academics more prominently on display than in their racism. They claim to be "liberals," but the depth of their race-based hatred is startling.
