S. academic community. Yale is so strapped for cash it has had to defer $1 billion in maintenance and has closed two departments. Yet, the school apparently would rather turn its back on $20 million than offend the forces of ‘political correctness” and offer a course in the civilization that gave it birth (1996, p. 21; see also Bass, 1995).

Indeed, that is one of my motivations for engaging in this cooperative endeavour. It would be magnificent to have such an accomplished and eloquent scholar consistently take the side of liberty. But, I hope this change of heart and mind does not occur before we are finished, lest, we never complete the writing of this book.
