Continuity in Crisis: The University at Bay.
Moser, Charles A., Ed.
"Universities," the monthly newsletter of University Professors for Academic Order, began publication in August 1970. This anthology is for the most part a compilation of representative articles printed in it from the beginning to May 1973. Taken as a whole, they delineate a theory of the traditional university much in need of articulation during a period of rapid change in our conception of the university. The contents are divided into the following sections: freedom and order; the disease defined (intellectual decay, radicalized academy, bias and discrimination, declining standards), the politicized academy, and a strategy of freedom in order (suggestions for confronting the radicalized campus, teacher evaluation, limits of academic freedom, tenure safeguards). The final section includes reviews of books by Nisbet, Buchanan and Devletoglou, Hook, Dietz, Glazer, Frankel, Ulam, and Barzun. Throughout the brief span of its existence, the University Professors for Academic Order has sought to uphold by word and example the ideals of the traditional university. This book is a further contribution to that end. (Author/PG)
