Stories from Conservative and Moderate Professors Who Have Been Ridiculed, Ostracized, Marginalized, Demonized, and Frozen Out
M.D. Allen, Martin Slann, Paul Kengor, Scott Herring, Brian E. Birdnow, Jack Kerwick
Mary Grabar, Ph.D., founder of Dissident Prof, (www.dissidentprof.com) gathers stories by six of her colleagues, professors "exiled" professionally and socially for ideas deemed heretical by today's radical academic gatekeepers. Readers will get an inside look at how the academy operates-and how the gatekeepers deny that they discriminate. With lively and entertaining prose, these six professors tell tales of being ostracized, ridiculed, and denied opportunities to teach-even when their students protest on their behalf! They will learn how the radicals use tax and tuition money to fund studies and academic centers to smear political opponents and those who disagree with their politically correct worldviews.

"Exiled" offers an overview of what went wrong with academia and how the Left continues to play power politics inside the ivy-covered walls. It's a reader-friendly and entertaining review, and is intended to knock down the alibis and false claims made by academics about why there are so few conservatives and moderates in higher education. Thus, it presents a starting point for reform.
