Respected author, critic, and essayist Bruce Bawer—whose previous book, <em>While Europe Slept: How Radical Islam Is Destroying the West from Within</em>, was a <em>New York Times</em> bestseller and a National Book Critics Circle Award finalist—now offers a trenchant and sweeping critique of the sorry state of higher education since the campus revolutions of the late ’60s and early ’70s. In <em>The Victims’ Revolution</em>, Bawer incisively contends that the rise of identity-based college courses and disciplines (Women’s Studies, Black Studies, Gay Studies, etc.) forty years ago has resulted in an impoverishment of thought and widespread political confusion, while filling the brains of students with politically correct mush. Timely, controversial, and brilliantly argued, Bawer’s <em>The Victims’ Revolution</em> is necessary reading for students, educators, and anyone concerned about the contemporary crisis in academia—a serious and important work that stands with other essential books on the subject, like <em>The Shadow University</em> by Alan Kors, <em>Illiberal Education</em> by Dinesh D’Souza, and Allan Bloom’s <em>The Closing of the American Mind</em>.<br />
