Since Tenured Radicals first appeared in 1990, it has achieved a stature as the leading critique of the ways in which the humanities are not taught and studied in American universities. Trenchant and witty, it lays bare the sham of what now passes for serious academic pursuit in too many circles. In this new third edition, completely reset, Roger Kimball has brought the text up to date and has added a new Introduction. Those who have never read Tenured Radicals are in for a treat; others may find a second reading worth their while. "Mr. Kimball names his enemies precisely...This book will breed fistfights."-Roger Rosenblatt, New York Times Book Review. "A withering critique."-Jonathan Yardley, Washington Post Book World.
Roger Kimball is managing editor of the New Criterion and an art critic for the London Spectator. His other books include Lives of the Mind, Experiments Against Reality, and The Long March. He lives in South Norwalk, Connecticut.
