In August of 1990, Roger Kimball was a guest on Booknotes to discuss his book Tenured Radicals: How Politics Has Corrupted Our Higher Education, published by Abrams Books. A revised edition of this book was published in 1998 by Ivan R. Dee Publishers. In this book, he argues that the radicalism of the 1960s has worked its way into colleges and universities through feminists, neo-Marxists and “practicioners of deconstruction” who are now the professors. He argues that these liberals are corrupting the traditional goals, intellectually and morally, of a solid liberal arts education. They deprive students of a well-rounded education and are mounting a “concerted effort to attack the very foundations of the society that guarantee the independence of our institutions of higher education.” close
