The faculty lounges : and other reasons why you won't get the college education you paid for

September 19, 2014
Riley, Naomi Schaefer.
Chicago : Ivan R. Dee ; [Lanham, Md.] : Distributed by National Book Network, [2011].
xiii, 195 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm
A new look at an old question -- The battle cry of academic freedom -- Stop the academic presses: get teachers back in the classroom -- The academic underclass -- The unions are coming -- University politics and the politics of the university -- Following the money -- Afterword: the Olin experiment.
College tuition has risen four times faster than the rate of inflation in the past two decades. While faculties like to blame the rising costs on fancy athletic buildings and bloated administrations, professors are hardly getting the short end of the stick. Spending on instruction has increased 22 percent over the past decade at private research universities. Parents and taxpayers shouldn't get overheated about faculty salaries: tenure is where they should concentrate their anger. The jobs-for-life entitlement that comes with an ivory tower position is at the heart of so many problems with higher education today. Veteran journalist Naomi Schaefer Riley, an alumna of one of the country's most expensive and best-endowed schools, explores how tenure has promoted a class system in higher education, leaving contingent faculty who are barely making minimum wage and have no time for students to teach large swaths of the undergraduate population. She shows how the institution of tenure forces junior professors to keep their mouths shut for a decade or more if they disagree with senior faculty about anything from politics to research methods. And she examines how the institution of tenure -- with the job security, mediocre salaries and low levels of accountability it entails -- may be attracting the least innovative and interesting members of our society into teaching.--Publisher.

Let me be clear : Barack Obama's war on millennials, and one woman's case for hope

September 18, 2014
Kieffer, Katie.
New York : Crown Forum, [2014]
xiii, 337 pages ; 25 cm
"A SEARING INDICTMENT OF THE MASTER OF CHARM, BARACK OBAMA, FOR HIS HISTORIC WAR ON AMERICAN YOUTH "Let me be clear." It was his come-hither call, his winsome whistle, his lingual lure. Barack Obama employed this phrase to sell his lies as maxims and his ineptitude as expertise. Obama seduced a generation of 95 million young Americans he used for his own political gain. Katie Kieffer is a gutsy commentator who gives it back to Barack. She turns his words against him. She grabs the high bar of transparency that Obama set for himself and snaps it with her wit. In Let Me Be Clear, Kieffer gives us an unflinching yet entertaining account of this administration's exploitation of Millennials.

Menachem Begin : the battle for Israel's soul

September 18, 2014
Gordis, Daniel, author.
New York : Nextbook/Schocken, [2014]
295 pages : illustrations ; 23 cm.
Between the Kaiser and the Czar -- A pit of decay and dust -- This year we are slaves -- We fight therefore we are -- A brutal act -- Deadly road to Jerusalem -- A civil war with the enemy at our gates -- Say "no" to forgiveness -- Of whom were we afraid? -- The style of a good Jew -- Give those people a haven -- A time for war and a time for peace -- It belongs to my people -- Crazy like a fox -- Nobody's cowering Jew -- I cannot go on.
Reviled as a fascist by his great rival Ben-Gurion, venerated by Israel's underclass, the first Israeli to win the Nobel Peace Prize, a proud Jew but not a conventionally religious one, Menachem Begin was both complex and controversial. Born in Poland in 1913, Begin was a youthful admirer of the Revisionist Zionist movement. A powerful orator, Begin was imprisoned by the Soviets in 1940, joined the Free Polish Army in 1942, and arrived in Palestine as a Polish soldier shortly thereafter. Joining the underground paramilitary Irgun in 1943, he achieved instant notoriety for the organization's violent acts. Intentionally left out of the new Israeli government, Begin's right-leaning Herut party became a fixture of the opposition, until the surprising parliamentary victory of his political coalition in 1977 made him prime minister. Welcoming Egyptian president Anwar Sadat to Israel and cosigning a peace treaty with him on the White House lawn in 1979, Begin accomplished what his predecessors could not. His outreach to Ethiopian Jews and Vietnamese "boat people" was universally admired, and his decision to bomb Iraq's nuclear reactor in 1981 is now regarded as an act of courageous foresight. But the disastrous invasion of Lebanon, combined with his declining health and the death of his wife, led Begin to resign in 1983. He spent the next nine years in virtual seclusion, until his death in 1992. Begin was buried not alongside Israel's prime ministers, but alongside the Irgun comrades who died in the struggle to create the Jewish national home to which he had devoted his life. Daniel Gordis's perceptive biography gives us new insight into a remarkable political figure whose influence continues to be felt throughout the world.--From publisher description.
