From Democratiya, a review of Forget 68 by Daniel Cohn-Bendit and Mai 68 Explique a Nicolas Sarkozy by Andre and Raphael Glucksmann; Russell Berman on "left-fascism" and campus anti-Semitism: Radicalism as reaction; Dick Howard on an international New Left; Fred Siegel on 1968 and the ongoing revolt against the masses; Eric Chenoweth on the true revolutionaries of 1968; and Gabriel Noah Brahm Jr. on the post-Left: An archeology and a genealogy. From The Nation, a review of Liberty of Conscience by Martha Nussbaum and Founding Faith by Steven Waldman; more on Chasing the Flame by Samantha Power; and a review of Detective Story and The Pathseeker: Searching for Traces by Imre Kertesz. Time to cut class: Ditch habits left over from school and free your mind. From THES, sex and the university: Romantic attractions between teacher and student may be as old as pedagogy itself, but now such relationships cause people to worry about abuses of power and litigation; computers and lasers are compelling proof that researchers' flights of fancy can pay off, but policymakers prefer to fund work with obvious economic merits; if you don't like your job try the real world and see just how lucky we academics are; and a novel old idea about art: Despite prevailing orthodoxies, creative writing is stealthily reviving liberal humanism.
