This insightful and often humorous look into the way a professor of English conducts classes is both a critically well-argued defense of the “liberal arts” in education, and a welcome rebuttal of conservative activists’ stated opinions on race, class and gender in our society. As he engagingly and clearly explains the underlying concepts of “postmodern” America to us, Berube also resurrects the ideals of “liberalism” from the reactionary rhetoric of the current “conservative” lexicon of dirty words.
RATING: * * * * Very, very good
