“For God, for country, and for Yale…in that order,” William F. Buckley Jr. wrote as the dedication of his monumental work—a compendium of knowledge that still resonates within the halls of the Ivy League university that tried to cover up its political and religious bias. Buckley’s harsh assessment of his alma mater divulged the reality behind the institution’s wholly secular education, even within the religion department and divinity school. Unabashed, one former Yale student details the importance of Christianity and heralds the modern conservative movement in his preeminent tell-all, God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of “Academic Freedom.”

The freedom of academics to pursue knowledge and truth in their research, writing, and teaching is a fundamental principle of contemporary higher education in the United States. But this freedom has been hard won and regularly abridged, reinterpreted, and violated. As a result, it has generated literature in a variety of disciplines. This book is a guide to research on academic freedom. Included are annotated entries for nearly 500 books, articles, chapters, web sites, and other sources of information. Entries are grouped in topical chapters and arranged alphabetically by author within each chapter. While most of the works were published since 1940, some earlier studies are also included.

Von den Kreuzzügen des George W. Bush über die schrillen Attacken der »Tea Party« bis hin zur populistischen Mobilisierung Donald Trumps: Amerikas Konservative halten die USA in Atem. Für viele Europäer handelt es sich um ein verstörendes Phänomen, da die Kombination aus radikalem Individualismus, tiefer Religiosität und Hyperpatriotismus hierzulande in dieser Form kaum existiert. Das Buch zeichnet die Formierung einer politischen Bewegung nach, die vom Rande des politischen Geschehens in den letzten Jahrzehnten in das Zentrum der amerikanischen Politik gelangte - und fragt schließlich nach der Zukunft einer Partei, die den Vormarsch des Außenseiters Donald Trump nicht zu stoppen vermochte.

Knowledge in the Making

Academic Freedom and Free Speech in America's Schools and Universities

Author: Joan DelFattore

Publisher: Yale University Press

ISBN: 0300168519

How free are students and teachers to express unpopular ideas in public schools and universities? Not free enough, Joan DelFattore suggests. Wading without hesitation into some of the most contentious issues of our times, she investigates battles over a wide range of topics that have fractured school and university communities—homosexuality-themed children's books, research on race-based intelligence, the teaching of evolution, the regulation of hate speech, and more—and with her usual evenhanded approach offers insights supported by theory and by practical expertise. Two key questions arise: What ideas should schools and universities teach? And what rights do teachers and students have to disagree with those ideas? The answers are not the same for K–12 schools as they are for public universities. But far from drawing a bright line between them, DelFattore suggests that we must consider public education as a whole to determine how—and how successfully—it deals with conflicting views. When expert opinion clashes with popular belief, which should prevail? How much independence should K–12 teachers have? How do we foster the cutting-edge research that makes America a world leader in higher education? What are the free-speech rights of students? This uniquely accessible and balanced discussion deserves the full attention of everyone concerned with academic goals and agendas in our schools.

Ronald Reagan and the Campaign That Changed America

“A first-rate work of insider his­tory . . . A monumental accomplishment.” —National Review The election that changed everything: Craig Shirley’s masterful account of the 1980 presidential campaign reveals how a race judged “too close to call” as late as Election Day became a Reagan landslide—and altered the course of history. To write Rendezvous with Destiny, Shirley gained unprecedented access to 1980 campaign files and interviewed more than 150 insiders—from Reagan’s closest advisers and family members to Jimmy Carter himself. His gripping account follows Reagan’s unlikely path from his bitter defeat on the floor of the 1976 Republican convention, through his underreported “wilderness years,” through grueling primary fights in which he knocked out several Republican heavyweights, through an often-nasty general election campaign complicated by the presence of a third-party candidate (not to mention the looming shadow of Ted Kennedy), to Reagan’s astounding victory on Election Night in 1980. Shirley’s years of intensive research have enabled him to relate countless untold stories—including, at long last, the solution to one of the most enduring mysteries in politics: just how Reagan’s campaign got hold of Carter’s debate briefing books.
