Book Description

An impassioned and moving account of a father's attempt to realize the full potential of his child, born with Down syndrome.

Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom by Michael Berube Humanities, Higher Education, and Academic Freedom, Hardback (April 2015)

This book is a lively, passionate defence of contemporary work in the humanities, and, beyond that, of the university system that makes such work possible. The book's stark accounts of academic labour, and its proposals for reform of the tenure system, are novel, controversial, timely, and very necessary.

Left at War by Michael Berube Left at War, Paperback (July 2011)

A devastating account of the American left during wartime, and at war with itself
