From the Inside Flap
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.

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.Read more ›
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.Read more ›
