From the bestselling author of Cultural Literacy, a passionate and cogent argument for reforming the way we teach our children

The Washington Post - Jay Mathews

In this intriguing, irresistible book, Hirsch tells of life as the odd man out at the University of Virginia…Those who consider Hirsch an aged crank who wants to stuff public schools into a jingoistic straitjacket should read this book. So should those who think our children need more and better instruction in their historical and literary roots. He lays it all out for foe and friend to judge, in the clearest form since his ground-breaking 1987 book, Cultural Literacy.
