Publisher's Summary

Throughout the US, the politics of race and gender in our universities are transforming admissions policies, as well as curriculums. This controversial expose attacks the wave of multicultural ideology, in one of the earliest, and most thorough, efforts to examine the rapidly eroding traditions of scholarship and reward for individual achievement. Dinesh D'Souza discovers in this firsthand investigation of today's campuses that the universities with the strongest multicultural agendas are the ones reporting the greatest number of racially charged incidents. D'Souza argues that the programs designed to foster racial harmony instead promote intolerance and have split American universities on moral grounds and destroyed the right to liberal learning.

Re: Appalling

Given that the reviewer of appalling is a "minoity" and rated this book so low, simply tells me that Mr D'Souza has struck a chord...probably one with more truth than fiction. I'm buying it now.

from first one

Interesting, is a man of color suppose to follow a certain party line? And when does having conservative views and opinions make someone a racist? Anyways, I greatly enjoyed this book, as well as other books he has written.

ditto the last response

She sold me too!- she does seem a little confused about her three races, it seems to me. She probably suffered a lot! That white/asian/female racism is just rampant;)

Important book, but...

D'Souza's book has an important message. However, the audio is awful. I'd recommend picking up a hard copy and reading it. Those who are interested in this subject may want to listen to "God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of Academic Freedom" by William F. Buckley. I found it as important and still relevant after fifty years in print.

Good material.. poor audio.

Found the content very interesting, but the person reading the book to us sounded like a computer.

An Objective Critique of Modern Education

I was attending a small university when many of the ideas D'Souza was addressing were being taught. However, I was fortunate to be in the company of esteemed educators who guided me through a lot of the misinformation I was being taught. Fortunately, I was taught how to think outside the university and not just what to think. I have been the better for it. Notwithstanding, a book like Illiberal Education would have been a boon to me and others if it had been published then. I hope this text becomes required reading for students entering our educational institutions. It will address the downward spiral of modern education in our private and public schools and universities.

Excellent book, bad recording

Dinesh D'Souza again hits a home run in pointing out the damaging practices of the progressives. This book exposes the racially discriminatory  policies invoked in an effort to reduce racism. In an effort to bring people together, he explains how these practices have the divisive results.

Loved it!

Unafraid and unapologetic! Amazing, and practical wisdom. Hard to believe that so much can be covered in such a small book.

STILL RELEVANT TODAY

This book is as relevant today as when it was first written. A must read for anyone, in particular, college students.
