“For God, for country, and for Yale…in that order,” William F. Buckley Jr. wrote as the dedication of his monumental work—a compendium of knowledge that still resonates within the halls of the Ivy League university that tried to cover up its political and religious bias. Buckley’s harsh assessment of his alma mater divulged the reality behind the institution’s wholly secular education, even within the religion department and divinity school. Unabashed, one former Yale student details the importance of Christianity and heralds the modern conservative movement in his preeminent tell-all, God and Man at Yale: The Superstitions of “Academic Freedom.”

To glimpse America's future, one needs to look no further than its college campuses. Of those institutions, none holds more clout than Yale University, the hallowed "cradle of presidents." In Sex and God at Yale, recent graduate Nathan Harden undresses perversity among the Ivy and ideology gone wild as the upper echelon of academia is mired in nothing less than a full-fledged moral crisis. Three generations ago, William F. Buckley's classic God and Man at Yale, a critique of enforced liberalism at his alma mater, became a rallying cry of the conservative movement. Today Harden reveals how a loss of purpose, borne of extreme agendas and single-minded political correctness shielded under labels of "academic freedom," subverts the goals of higher education. Harden's provocative narrative highlights the implications of the controversial Sex Week on campus and the social elitism of the Yale "naked party" phenomenon. Going beyond mere sexual expose, Sex and God at Yale pulls the sheets off of institutional licentiousness and examines how his alma mater got to a point where: • During "Sex Week" at Yale, porn producers were allowed onto campus property to give demonstrations on sexual technique—and give out samples of their products. • An art student received departmental approval—before the ensuing media attention alerted the public and Yale alumni—for an art project in which she claimed to have used the blood and tissue from repeated self-induced miscarriages. • The university became the subject of a federal investigation for allegedly creating a hostile environment for women. Much more than this, Harden examines the inherent contradictions in the partisan politicizing of higher education. What does it say when Yale seeks to distance itself from its Divinity School roots while at the same time it hires a Muslim imam with no academic credentials to instruct students? When the same school that would not allow ROTC on its campus for decades invites a former Taliban spokesperson to study at the university? Or employs a professor who praised Hamas terrorists? As Harden asks: What sort of moral leadership can we expect from Yale's presidents and CEOs of tomorrow? Will the so-called "abortion artist" be leading the National Endowment for the Arts in twenty years? Will a future president be practicing moves he or she learned during Sex Week in the closet of the Oval Office? If tyrants tell little girls they aren't allowed to go to school, will an Ivy-educated Taliban emissary be the one to deliver the message? Sex and God at Yale is required reading for the parent of any college-bound student—and for anyone concerned about the direction of higher education in America and the implications it has for young students today and the leaders of tomorrow.

Yale Under God

"Yale under God" - does it sound unlikely these days? That's probably because of what has been happening in the past few decades in our country. Our colleges - and America - were founded by believers in God, but there are those revisionists who would argue otherwise. In an effort to include all cultures in this melting-pot of a nation, today's humanists with their man-made ideas have cut any mention of God out of classrooms and textbooks, contributing to the decline of American education. This book is an attempt to restore the Christian history of Yale and its town, New Haven. Beginning with the Puritans in 1638 to the present day, it also reveals a dark side of Yale, along with points of "Lux et Veritas" (light and truth). A few years ago Yale celebrated several events that brought out facets of its history - the 300th birthdays of both the University and Jonathan Edwards, one of its first students (1701 and 1703); the 350th birthday of Elihu Yale; and the Amistad Affair, which was made into a movie by Stephen Spielberg. A few people appreciated these events for a moment, but what long-lasting effect did they have? From the author, who worked at Yale for two decades and has lived in New Haven for even longer, comes the hope that this book will shed some light on our past, be a tool in the reader's hands, and ultimately be a guide to future generations.

While debates abound today over the cost, purpose, and effectiveness of higher education, often lost in this conversation is a critical question: Should higher education attempt to shape students' moral and spiritual character in any systematic manner as in the past, or focus upon equipping students with mere technical knowledge? Faith, Freedom, and Higher Education argues that Christianity can still play an important role in contemporary American higher education. George M. Marsden, D. G. Hart, and George H. Nash, among its authors, analyze the debate over the secularization of the university and the impact of liberal Protestantism and fundamentalism on the American academy during the twentieth century. Contributors also assess how the ideas of Dorothy Sayers, C. S. Lewis, Wendell Berry, and Allan Bloom can be used to improve Christian higher education. Finally, the volume examines the contributions Christian faith can make to collegiate education and outlines how Christian institutions can preserve their religious mission while striving for academic excellence.

Taking the Fight to the Enemy: Neoconservatism and the Age of Ideology looks at six "neoconservative" intellectuals and the influences on their thinking about the defects of communism, fascism, progressivism, the dominant American culture, and even capitalism itself. Adam L. Fuller examines the gestation of political criticism within the pages of the neoconservatives' own writing as well as the books they read and learned from in order to demonstrate how the neoconservative political strategy is to "take the fight to the enemy."
